As soon as it comes into contact with air, food can suffer from physical, enzymatic, microbiological, and biochemical deterioration. Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is a process for packaging foodstuff together with a gas or a gas mixture having protective properties. MAP gases are used to replace the air inside the packaging and eliminate or reduce any product deterioration. Among the ALIGAL™ solutions we have developed a special range of products for Modified Atmosphere Packaging.
MAP is now used worldwide, but has varying levels of penetration due to different consumer habits. It is a highly natural technique, and in many countries it is the preferred packaging solution.
Thanks to our extensive partnership with food producers worldwide, we have the experience to address a broad range of long-standing and more recent food concerns. Beyond a wide range of food grade gas mixtures, ALIGAL™ for MAP encompasses a full range of equipment and services like:
microbiological filtration on our customers sites,
on site gas mixing for fine tuned packaging atmospheres,
audit installations and customer training.
Please discover our ALIGAL™ line created exclusively for MAP.
