Our Meals Aren't Frozen
We are often asked how our meals are delivered, and when.
We deliver every day all over Australia and because our meals are pressure cooked they don't need refrigeration and have a long shelf life. This method of cooking is called retorted.
Retorted meals, also known as retort pouch meals or shelf-stable ready-to-eat meals, are pre-packaged food products that have undergone a specific processing method called retort processing. This method involves sealing the food in a pouch or container and then subjecting it to high heat and pressure to sterilize and preserve the contents. As a result of this process, retorted meals have a long shelf life without the need for refrigeration, making them convenient for storage and consumption, especially in situations where refrigeration is limited or not available.
Here are some key features and characteristics of retorted meals:
Packaging: Retorted meals are typically packaged in flexible pouches or containers that are designed to withstand the high heat and pressure of the retort process. The packaging helps to maintain the quality and safety of the food inside.
