What is Modified Atmosphere Packaging?


Modified atmosphere packaging is the practice of replacing the composition of the internal atmosphere of a package in order to retain freshness and to improve the shelf life. The modification process often replaces oxygen with a mix of inert gases and gases that can lower Ph and may slow or inhibit the growth of bacteria.


Current US design has 360° light curtain that is certified and fully compliant with all US OSHA regulations. Any specific safety requirement you may have such as mechanically or electronically locked guarding can be designed.

Where can I use your machines

MAPtech has a range of machines from the stand- alone unit suitable for a lab, test kitchen or a start-up up to a high speed machine which can be in-line or stand-alone to deliver substantial commercial volumes of sealed trays.
