Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
A proven way to effectively extend the shelf life of your packaged food products
Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) or gas flushing is a proven and natural method of extending the shelf life and quality of food products. It uses a specific single gas or a mixture of gases to create a protective atmosphere around the food. This protective atmosphere, combined with appropriate packaging material and, in many cases, lowered temperatures, preserves the taste, safety and appearance of the food for longer.
With decades of experience in MAP, we have run numerous product tests and built knowledge about the ideal gas mixture for each food type. Whatever your business size, our experts look forward to helping you along the way, from identifying the best gas mixture for your product to getting you started up.
