Food Production

As a result, Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is commonly adopted within the food industry, by where food products are packaged under a specified gaseous atmosphere.

MAP allows even smaller companies the opportunity to expand their geographic coverage, as by extending the shelf-life of their products they can export them further.

Costs for MAP are higher than traditional packaging, therefore testing is an advised requirement to ensure that expenses are justified.

Suitable packaging needs to be:


  • Able to contain the product and any gases if packed under MAP
  • Capable of withstanding the packaging and transportation process
  • Suitably impermeable to water and gas vapour
  • Capable of remaining airtightly sealed
