Custom Retort Packaging

Custom Retort Pouches Will Make Your Product Fly Off the Shelf

People Buy With Their Eyes First

In today’s busy society, ready-to-eat (RTE) food has become a booming business. Custom retort packaging, also known as retortable packaging, has been popular overseas for some time now. In recent years, food manufacturers in the United States have realized the enormous cost savings of using a retort pouch over traditional canned food. If this is a market you are looking to enter, it’s important to find a packaging supplier that knows the ins and outs of how to package RTE food properly.

CarePac does nothing but specialize in flexible barrier pouches and our specialists are here to walk you through the process.

Flexible Retort Packaging Configurations

Stand Up

Pouch

Stand up pouches have a wide face and back, which makes them perfect for custom printing and/or applying a label. Our stand up retort pouches can be custom printed and available features include heavy duty zippers, tear notches, hang holes, pour spouts, and valves for custom retort packaging.

Square Bottom 

Pouch

Square bottom retort pouches are an older configuration of pouch, still popular with the coffee industry, and many others. As the bottom gusset provides the stability and allows the pouch to stay upright, the proper choice of which style to use is important when design custom retort packaging.

3-Seal 

Pouch

3 side seal retort pouches are a fantastic choice when you do not need the product to sit on a shelf. Frozen foods, jerky, and custom retort packaging are just a few examples where this would be a viable configuration.

Step 2: Sizing and Configuration

Pick the exact right size custom printed pouches for your product. All custom printed pouches that we sell can be custom sized, with custom die-cut windows, or other unique configurations. Generally if it is possible with a flexible material then we can supply your custom printed pouches, not a problem.

Because printing occurs before the bag or pouch is made, (we print the roll stock), sizing and configuration is totally customizable to your specifications. You can customize the size of your package to exactly what you need.

Step 3: Master Art Proofs

You don’t have to bring press ready art. There are many technical considerations when printing barrier films, and we do all that work for you. We’ll take your original art files and set them up for printing to ensure you get the best quality printing, and develop digital art proofs that you can revise. We focus on providing custom printed pouches and barrier packaging that meets your budget.

Step 4: Material Is Printed

We offer Digital, Plate, and cylinder printing options for making your custom printed pouches. So once the material rolls are cut, treated, they are then printed, and finally any lamination is applied (matte, gloss etc).

Step 5: The Bags Are Made!

The printed material is then made into your bag.We offer a selection of finishing laminations, and varnishes for your custom printed pouches.
