Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is a safe and natural method of extending shelf life for fresh food products without the addition of artificial preservatives. MAP greatly reduces the oxygen content in a food package and replaces the headspace in the container with a natural inert gas such as nitrogen or carbon dioxide which are in the air we breathe. These inert gases coupled with the lack of oxygen prevent bacteria and mold from forming on the food in the package thus extending the shelf life. Point Five has one of the most unique methods of applying a modified atmosphere to a food container in that our systems do not use a mechanical vacuum to remove the oxygen. We use a quick and gentle flush of gas that does not harm or affect taste, texture, or appearance.
This fully automated, turnkey hummus packaging system incorporates the Point Five MAP method and is available for immediate purchase and delivery. Increase your productivity and yield today – Contact us for a quote.
