M.A.P & Vacuuming
Modified Atmosphere And Vacuuming Packaging.
When packing our products, it is essential to keep them fresh and with a nice texture.
From the very moment fruit is picked, corn is harvested or fish is caught, the race against time begins. From now on, natural deterioration, spoilage and external factors endanger the quality and shelf-life of the foodstuff. Therefore, the packaging stage is of critical importance because the way the foodstuff is packaged is decisive when it comes to prolonging shelf-life and guaranteeing food safety for the consumer.
What does M.A.P packaging mean?
M.A.P is an effective and intelligent concept of food preservation. It is the practice of modifying the composition of the internal atmosphere of a package in order to improve the shelf life and to reduce the food waste.
Through the use of natural gases and adequate packaging materials and machines, the quality of foodstuffs is maintained and their shelf-life enhanced. Normally the gases used for modified atmosphere packaging are Nitrogen (N2), Oxygen(O2) and Carbon Dioxide(CO2), or a mixture of them.
What is Vacuuming Packaging?
Vacuum packaging refers to the technique of removing air from a pack prior to sealing and it predates the use of gases as a means of food preservation. Its principal purpose is to remove oxygen by pulling the packaging material into intimate contact with the product.
