modified atmosphere packaging

What is Modified Atmosphere Packaging?

Modified Atmosphere Packaging is the combination of an optimal blend of Nitrogen and/or Carbon Dioxide with in a high-barrier or Permeable package. A finely adjusted and carefully controlled gas blend is created to meet the specific respiration need for each packaged food product.

To package a product in a modified atmosphere requires sophisticated machinery, to flush out air from the packaging chamber and replace it with a different gas or precisely defined mixture of gases, then seal the product in the packaging so that only the modified atmosphere surrounds the product and not any other unwanted gas.

Trays and Packaging films are selected to match the characteristics and needs of each food product. For instance, meat and fish require very low gas permeability films so, For non-respiring products (meat, fish,cheese, Etc..) high barrier films are used. The initial flushed gas mixture will be maintained inside the package. Fruit and Vegetables, However, are respiring (breathing) products where the interaction of the packaging material with the product is important. In this instance, the permeability of the packaging film is adapted to the products respiration. The goal is to establish an equilibrium between the O2 and the CO2 inside the package and this balance results in extended shelf life. in nearly all instances, a M.A.P gas mix slows down the product deterioration, spoilage and rancidity caused by mold and other aerobic organisms.

WHY  M.A.P  SEAL ?

Longer shelf life M.A.P packages allow food processors, food manufacturers, food distributors and food retailers to better control product quality, availability and costs. Longer freshness cycles permit grocers to eliminate frequent product rotation, removal and restocking; thereby reducing labor and waste disposal cost. Distributors can extend distribution territories or offer a greater variety of product line to the retailer, Since less frequent product replacement requirements permits growth in other areas. Food Manufacturers are able to take advantage of extended replacement cycles to reduce production replacement demands. Manufacturing capacity can be more profitably utilized by developing and offering new products.

Yogurt is a food celebrity. Not only has the cultured dairy delicacy conquered increasing real estate at retail, in refrigerators and lunch bags, it’s now a double-digit growth category for many food service operations, according to The NPD Group, Port Washington, N.Y.

Now is the time to join this booming category. Consumption of yogurt is up an astounding 400% and there’s still a lot of room for manufacturer’s to profit here with the right innovation. Let us give you some ideas in yogurt packaging.

In the wake of the Greek yogurt craze, yogurt remains a superfood with significant upside, according to a recently released report from Packaged Facts, The Yogurt Market and Yogurt Innovation: Greek Yogurt and Beyond. Packaged Facts forecasts that U.S. retail sales of yogurt will approach $9.3 billion by 2017, up from $7.3 billion in 2012. Even with its recent market growth, yogurt continues to be consumed at a much lower per capita rate in the U.S. than in other countries where yogurt is a staple. Moreover, yogurt is spreading beyond the breakfast daypart, reflecting the “breakfast-all-day” culinary and menu trend.

In the U.S. market, retail dollar sales of Greek yogurt increased more than 50% in 2012 to reach $1.6 billion, with significant gains in the mass-market as well as natural and specialty retail channels. At the same time, non-Greek yogurt saw its sales decrease. According to David Sprinkle, publisher of Packaged Facts, “Greek yogurt has raised its share of the refrigerated yogurt market to 35%, up from only 1% in 2007.” Even though it is unlikely that Greek yogurt can keep up its growth marathon, Greek yogurt has continued to increase market sales and share through first quarter 2013.

Private label controls a large share of the market in refrigerated yogurt, in aggregate ranking as the number two brand overall, with growth outpacing the market. In frozen yogurt, private label ranks as the number one brand, although it is a far less important player in yogurt drinks. The restaurant and foodservice industry also is getting in on the action, with Chobani and Dannon opening up their own yogurt shops, and yogurt appearing on more restaurant menus.

The Packaged Facts report also shows how innovative marketers are driving the yogurt and especially Greek yogurt bandwagon into other food categories. Yogurt’s popularity and “healthy halo” have propelled a spill-over over into product categories such as smoothies, frozen yogurt and novelties, cream cheese and butter, salad dressings, dips and spreads, and granola bars, among others.

Chips-and-salsa MAP pack debuts

The creative minds behind the AriZona Beverages brand have made their first major foray into food, launching a unique salsa-and-chips meal kit under the new Blue Luna Café brand.


After chips are deposited into a thermoformed tray salsa is hot-filled into a “cup” that’s actually a compartment formed out of one corner of the tray. The tray is nitrogen-flushed to drive out o2 and heat-sealed with lidding material. The combination of hot-filling gas flushing and barrier materials contributes to the nonrefrigerated shelf life of six months.

The tray is thermoformed of polypropylene by Rexam Containers (Union MO) and incorporates an ethylene vinyl alcohol barrier. Not only is the tray substantial enough to accommodate the hot-fill “We also wanted to give the consumer something that’s strong enough to really facilitate on-the-go [consumption]” says John Balboni executive vice president of business development for Ferrolito Vultaggio & Sons in Lake Success NY. That firm owns the Blue Luna Café and AriZona brands.

The specs and supplier of the lidstock hadn’t been finalized as Packaging World went to press though Balboni says the lidding will likely consist of a metallized structure with EVOH for barriers against moisture and O2 respectively. The lidding of the sample shown is flexo-printed though Balboni says the company will switch to gravure to obtain better graphics.

The tray will be packed automatically on custom-built tray fill/seal equipment from ORICS (Farmingdale, NY). Balboni claims the linear machine will reach speeds of 80 to 100 trays/min. A much smaller rotary machine also from Orics is currently being used to produce the pack. At press time the firm hadn’t made a final decision where the product will be contract-packaged.

The new package sells for approximately $1.49 for 3 oz of chips and 3 oz of salsa. It debuted last month in c-stores in the metro New York City area and is expected to go national says Balboni. Retailers also will receive a unique P-O-P display that holds eight packages and can hang on a wall sit on a counter or attach to the side of a display cooler.

The early feedback? “It’s been fabulous” says Balboni. “We were planning on sending a pallet or two [to distributors] and we’re getting truckload orders.”
