What is MAP Packaging?

Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is a revolutionary technology that alters the composition of the internal atmosphere of the packaging to delay microbial degradation and oxidation. The process involves modifying the levels of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen found in the air. This creates an optimal environment that preserves the quality and extends the shelf life of packaged products without the use of chemical preservatives.

Benefits of MAP:

  • Extended Shelf Life: By slowing down the process of decay, MAP allows food products such as meats, dairy, fruits, and vegetables to stay fresh for longer periods.
  • Maintains Product Quality: Keeps the taste, texture, and appearance of packaged goods intact.
  • Reduces Food Wastage: With longer shelf lives, the amount of food wasted due to spoilage is significantly reduced.
  • Enhances Consumer Safety: By inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria, MAP contributes to safer food consumption.

What is Gas Flush Packaging?

Gas flushing packaging, often used in conjunction with MAP. It involves the process of displacing the oxygen within a package with a gas or gas mixture (usually nitrogen or carbon dioxide). This technique is particularly effective in minimizing oxidation, preventing spoilage, and protecting against crushing for delicate products.

Benefits of Gas Flushing:

  • Prevents Oxidation: Reduces the risk of spoilage and discoloration in foods such as meats and snacks.
  • Protection for Delicate Products: Provides cushioning and protection, ideal for snack items like crisps and other easily crushed products.
  • Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of products, including non-food items that may benefit from reduced oxygen levels.
