Retort Pouches - Global Markets, Economics, Environmental Impact, Technology, and Participants

Retort Pouches - Global Markets, Economics, Environmental Impact, Technology, and Participants

"Retort Pouches 2015 - 2019" is the definitive study of the global retort pouch industry. The content encompasses technology assessments, economic and environmental analyses, industry trends, market statistics, market forecasts, and industry participant profiles.

What will drive the retort pouch family in the future? The taste for Asian sauces such as curry is growing around the world, and retort pouches have long been married to Asian sauces. Dinner sauces are newly popular in the United States. Will the dinner sauce honeymoon with retort pouches last long enough to form a good marriage?

Or perhaps it will be food processing technology that makes the difference. Several new technologies are now poised for commercial importance. These technologies greatly reduce the heat exposure of foods. Reduced heat exposure dramatically improves the taste, texture, and nutritional value of foods, which dramatically improves the chances for a large retort pouch family.

"Retort Pouches to 2019" examines all this and more.
