Retortable (plastic) packaging in Europe

26 March 2014

This report by AMI investigates the options for plastic packaging in retortable (food) packaging. The report addresses portability, microwaveability, re-sealability, ease of opening, portioned servings, in-pack serving, light-weight and being shatterproof.
The use of new plastic packaging solutions is discussed, and their improved process technology to deliver higher quality, long-life food products. Plastic packaging has the potential to re-vitalise mature markets such as soup, canned fruit, vegetables and fish, by introducing convenient, added value containers suited to modern day living. Obstacles to overcome are filling speed, cost and disposal.
