Title: Addressing Convenience Trend with Retort Pouches


The lifestyle shift caused by the pandemic has greatly affected consumers’ eating habits. As day-to-day life continues to be increasingly fast-paced, consumers seek to prepare food quicker and eat on the go, without sacrificing quality and freshness. As a result, global demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) and shelf-stable food items is increasing. For safety, convenience, freshness, and a long shelf life, many of these products rely on retort packaging.

Retort pouches owe their growing popularity to excellent thermal processing during the sterilization process, room temperature storage conditions, and no need for refrigeration unless opened. H.B. Fuller is partnering with retort manufacturers to meet increasing demand with our Flextra SBA5250/XA2250 – a solvent-based flexible packaging adhesive that enables a room temperature cure in seven days or fewer. It is PAA, cyclic ester, epoxy silane, and organotin free.
