MAP has been widely used in industrialized countries for more than fifty years, and it can be used to improve your operation as well.
Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is a method of packing where the gaseous atmosphere surrounding a product inside the package is changed to preserve products, the gases that are used range from single gases to mixtures of gases. And the gases that are controlled are Nitrogen, Oxygen, and Carbon Dioxide content of the atmosphere in the package, each gas’s ratio in the controlled atmosphere differ depending on the products that are being packed. MAP is a proven way to effectively extend the shelf life of your packaged food products, and it all depends on the gas mix. We, at AHG, offer our customers the complete solution for all your MAP needs, we have the certifications, reliable supply, and the experience needed to help your business meet its target.
Increased Shelf Life, maintaining product appearance, waste reduction, and reducing costs are four significant benefits that MAP provides your business:
Once the food products leave your facility, your main concern becomes safety, freshness, and appearance. As these are the points that and concerns that your customers will judge your products by. In other words, consistence is key. And MAP is an additional measure to ensure that your customers receive consistent and safe products.

We live in a world where every consumer more aware than ever before, there are points to be earned by every manufacturer who can get rid of as many additives as possible to have a clean label and show that its food is basically fresh and natural.
