Retort pouches are a safe flexible and lightweight packaging option that utilize a similar cooking process to canning, but the result is proven superior food quality as well as health and environmental benefits.
What are the benefits of using retort packaging?
Retort Pouches do not need to be cooked as long as cans, which results in the salmon not having to be overcooked. The salmon therefore retains more nutrients and the need for preservatives or high amounts of sodium and sugar is eliminated.
What is the shelf life of retort pouches?
You can store our retort salmon products in your pantry until it is time to use them. Only after the retort pouch has been opened is refrigeration required, as no preservatives are used in our smoked and candied salmon products. Because our products are processed in retort pouches they are considered to be a shelf-stable/long-life product, meaning they can be kept on the pantry shelf, without any refrigeration required, for at least 5 years.
