Modified Atmosphere Packaging

The Modified Atmosphere Packaging is a cost-effective way of preserving the quality of fresh produce by changing the gas levels inside a packaging.

Wrapping fresh produce in these semi-permeable films delays postharvest ripening and softening, and lengthens its shelf life by reducing weight loss – thus decreasing wastage of fresh produce, securing volume and supply, and stabilizing its market price.

Potential Collaborative Areas:

  • commercial packaging partners
  • further trials on different fresh produce and their varieties
