Retort pouch

In 2017 Aris Ltd has passed all the tests required to produce retort pouches.
The retort material is a special multilayer laminate with high barrier properties to package liquids (food for the military, ready-to-eat dishes). The products inside do not go bad even provided long ambient-stable storage.
A retort pouch is a unique alternative to tins:
  • It can be used to sterilize and “cook” (heat-treat) the product at the temperatures up to 120 – 140 С;
  • Natural product flavour with no changes;
  • Even after opening the product may be stored in the pouch;
  • Production savings: this packaging is several times cheaper than tins;
  • Shipping and storage savings: the pouches take dozens of times less space than tins and are lightweight;
  • Easy to open: no knife or opener is required.

What industries are retort pouches for?

Food for the military
Retort pouches are vital to pack and supply provisions to the military. They are ordered by manufacturers of meat dishes, sauces, clear soups and broths, fish, preserves, jams, various porridges and cereals with meat, and vegetable ragout.
In retort packaging dry provisions for the military turn into the wholesome home-made meal, but without inconvenient tins. Soft vacuum report pouches may be carried in a pocket or a rucksack.
