Modified Atmosphere Packaging

The Modified Atmosphere Packaging is used to pack fruits and vegetables without affecting the quality of the produces. It helps to control the transmission levels of gases and extend the shelf life of the fruits and vegetables. Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and Nitrogen are the common gases that are injected into the packaging. These provide a safe and balanced shelf-life extension to the food products.
