Retortable salmon pouch is the buzz at Bumble Bee

Bumble Bee Foods LLC, known best for tuna, is packaging prime fillet pink salmon steaks that offer busy consumers a quick, convenient meal option. Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Pink Salmon Steaks in 4-oz retort pouches are seasoned and ready-to-heat. Printed, laminated and produced in Asia by multiple, qualified suppliers there, the co. says the easy-open, vacuum-sealed pouch holds pink salmon steaks in two seasonings: Teriyaki and Lemon & Dill. The salmon steaks can be heated for 30 sec in a microwave oven. The proprietary pouches undergo a four-layer lamination process in which the outer polyester layer is reverse-printed in eight to 10 colors by gravure to prevent ink problems during retorting or any scuffing. The polyester is laminated to nylon, foil and polypropylene. Bumble Bee says testing has shown that the pouches can be shelf-stable for up to three years. Bumble Bee's RTE salmon joins Prime Fillet Albacore Steaks in pouches.
