Transparency Market Research has published a new report "Global Retort Packaging Market" to its report store.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2015 -- A retort pouch is a kind of food packaging made from laminate of metal foils and flexible plastics. It enables sterile packaging for a wide variety of food and beverages that are processed by antiseptic methods. A retort pouch is used as an alternative to conventional industrial canning methods. Retort packaging is being used to pack foods ranging from water to heat-treated, high-calorific, fully cooked meals such as Meals Ready-to-Eat(MREs). Retort packaging can be used to pack food items that can be eaten cold, warmed using a flame less ration heater, or by submersing it in hot water. The concept of retort packaging was introduced in 1992 by the U.S. military. Currently, it is used in space foods, field rations, and camping. The retort packaging market can be classified based on type into pouches, cartoons, and trays. Furthermore, based on materials, the market is segmented into polyester, aluminum foil, polypropylene, nylon, paper board; food grade cast polypropylene, and others. End-use of retort packaging is in industries such as food & beverage, healthcare, and personal care. Human food applications and wet pet food together account for over half of the total end-use for retort packing.
