Retort Packaging Market - Overview

Nowadays, packaged food products needs to get oxidized for longer shelf life by removing preservatives and making them organic. Food products are packed in special carrier film that can withstand temperatures of around 130 degree Celsius, so that all microorganisms are killed. For this, a better package known as retort packaging is used. Retort packaging kills all microorganisms when sterilized. The shelf life of products in retort packages is nearly 18 months. Advantages of retort packaging over conventional packaging drive its usage in the market. The introduction of microwave-compatible packages that need no refrigeration allows products to withstand processing and storage conditions without losing their natural odours, which also permits rapid microwave heating. Retort packaging protects products from oxygen and moisture, and is also cost-effective.
