Controlled Atmosphere Packaging (CAP) allows products to be stored for up to one year at optimum gas concentrations for quality retention. This allows extended marketing for seasonal crops, enabling the grower and processor to earn higher profits while the consumer enjoys greater availability of high quality fruits and vegetables. With decades of experience in the food industry, our experts know the best gases and concentrations to achieve optimum quality life.
With Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP), longer quality shelf life results in fewer product returns, less waste and higher customer satisfaction, and allows for optimization of production and distribution. Air Liquide leads the industry in modified atmosphere solutions. Our food industry experts understand that packaging material and equipment is every bit as important as the right mixture of gas. Our teams are in the field providing on-the-spot expertise for gas packaging of meats, fish, fruits and vegetables, baked goods, and dairy products.
