Hot-Fill Fitment Pouches

Ideal for pureed vegetables, fruits, and proteins, ready-to-serve soups, sauces, and marinades, fitment pouches are one  of the most innovative shelf-stable technologies offered by SOPAKCO. Resealable options are available with fitment closures, or press-and-lock features. Our retort hot-fill fitment pouches are microwavable with no refrigeration necessary.

Frozen Foods

SOPAKCO’s industry knowledge has allowed us to expand our processes beyond shelf-stable foods to incorporate frozen foods as well. We work with customers to create frozen entrees and sides that pass through advanced cooling and freezing processes to ensure the best color, taste, and texture.

Emergency Meal Rations

Our company was born in 1943 out of the need for military food rations. Today, we remain one of the top providers of meals ready-to-eat (MREs) to the U.S. Military. SOPAKCO works closely with other governmental agencies to provide emergency meal rations for relief efforts and disaster preparedness. Learn more about our emergency meal rations.
