MAP at a glance
Modified atmospheric is a process for packaging food products together with a gas or gas mixture that replaces air inside the package and provides protective and reactive properties.
When combined, the gas and the packaging help to prevent microbial, enzymatic and physical deterioration in order to maintain the initial taste and quality of a food product.
Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) preserves the color, appearance and organoleptic properties of food during the product's shelf life, and protects food from harmful bacteria.
Air Liquide offers a range of food-grade gases. As the industry benchmark, our ALIGAL™ products meet HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) standards for production and logistics of all liquids related to the agri-food industry.
HACCP is a system which identifies, evaluates and controls hazards which are significant to food safety. Our ALIGAL™ gases adhere to strict quality specifications and go beyond standard regulatory requirements.
We leverage our historical know-how in MAP applications to work closely with our customers in determining the right gas mixture for their products.
