The Shaka® process is probably the most significant advance in a generation for in-container food sterilisation and for the improvement of ambient food quality. The original patents have now expired so the technology is now in the public domain, and free to use. For companies entering this new field, know-how and technical support is available from Zinetec Ltd. This support should accelerate a new operator through the learning process.
Compared with operating conventional retort processes, the Shaka® process is like graduating from a tipper truck to driving a Formula One racing car. A couple of spins round the track with an experienced operator is highly recommended.
The ambient food market has been slow to expand in recent years, perhaps because more appetising formats have become widely available – at a price. The Shaka® process promises to improve the quality of ambient foods and re-kindle growth into this market.
