Retort Processing – never ending technology development

Actually speaking, there is NO specific technology for processing any specific product in any specific flexible containers. But there are good guidelines for processing the food in flexible containers developed by expert food technologists across the world.


The processor can modify the basic available technology as per the available resources like type of retorts, type of packing materials, type of recipes etc.


There are equipment which help the processor to study in detail about the cooking and sterilization effects of the products, behaviour of the containers and products during the processing, estimate the cooking damage occurring on the products during the processing, complete documentation of each steps in the development etc.


In this way, the processor can use such equipment / systems to develop and improve the basic technology day by day with the invention of new tips to optimize the processing and achieve better and better quality products.
