According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Asia Pacific Retort Pouches Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the Asia Pacific retort pouches market size reached US$ 619.4 Million in 2022. A retort pouch, also known as a flexible or a stand-up pouch, is widely used in the food industry for preserving and storing a wide variety of products. It is a flexible, heat-resistant plastic pouch that can withstand high temperatures during the retort sterilization process. The retort pouch is designed to provide an extended shelf life for food items while maintaining their flavor, nutritional value, and quality. The construction of a retort pouch involves multiple layers of flexible materials such as polyester, aluminum foil, and polypropylene. These layers work together to provide excellent barrier properties against oxygen, moisture, light, and other external factors that can degrade the product. The combination of materials ensures that the pouch can withstand the high heat and pressure of the retort sterilization process without compromising the integrity of the packaging or its contents.
