How is the pouch product processed?
For our pouch tuna, the fish are thawed, eviscerated, precooked, and cooled much the same as the canned product. The tuna loins are then carefully cleaned, to remove unwanted parts of the tuna as well as loose flakes/pieces. Vegetable broth is added to the tuna loins and the mixture is inserted into the pouches.
Next the pouches are sealed and sterilized. Once sterilized, the pouches are dried, and stored for several days prior to final 100% inspection and final packaging. This description is fairly general as our process is considered proprietary.
