Packaging under protective atmosphere (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) extends the shelf-life of fresh food considerably and is therefore an integral part of quality assurance in the food industry.

During the process, the natural ambient air in the package is simply replaced by a gas or gas mixture.

The new Whitepaper by WITT "Modified Atmosphere Packaging - How packaging under protective atmosphere extends the shelf-life of food" shows the basics of this technology and gives more detailed information about relevant gases and gas compositions for different foodstuffs, advantages and disadvantages of modified atmosphere packaging, machine types and quality assurance measures.
