Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
Controlling the atmosphere around a food product is key to extending product shelf life while maintaining freshness and attractiveness. Our experts understand the importance of gas flush packaging, a process that replaces package headspace with a beneficial gas or mixture of gases to dramatically slow bacterial growth and oxidative reactions. With MAP, extending quality shelf life results in fewer product returns, less waste and higher customer satisfaction, and allows for manufacturing and distribution optimization.
Air Liquide was one of the first to gain patents in modified atmosphere solutions. Our experts understand that packaging material and equipment is every bit as important as the right mixture of gas. Our technical support teams are in the field providing on-the-spot expertise for gas packaging.
