History of Retort Pouch
A Retort Pouch is a 4-ply reinforced oriented Nylon laminated pouch. It was initially researched and developed in the US to support NASA space and US army missions in the 1970s. It has a guaranteed shelf-life of two years at room temperature when left unopened.
The retort process was not widely available until the technology was brought over to Japan, where it was used for retail products and remains popular ever since.
Retort pouch products never really took off in the US, possibly because of the widespread use of large refrigerators in homes to store food stuff. The Japanese rarely had large amount of space in their homes, which could explain the popularity of storing unrefrigerated food stuffs.
Our products are assured of its quality. Analysis are conducted to verify on the quality parameter as following:
Physical evaluation: appearance, grammage, printing etc
Chemical analysis: pH, salt, total solid to ensure product consistency
Microbiological analysis: total plate count, yeast and mould
Research And Development
Dewina’s manufacturing ability lies in its commitment to research and development, which is primarily market driven. Constant market and technical research is conducted at every stage of a product’s development to ascertain customer preference, therefore ensuring a high level of acceptance.
