All fresh horticultural crops are living materials, possessing biological processes which are essential for the maintenance of life, which left uncontrolled, will lead to the deterioration of the produce. The shelf life of produce is limited by physiological ageing and water loss. Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) addresses both these factors and enables significant product specific shelf life extension. Modified atmosphere (MA) conditions are created inside the packages either by the commodity itself and/or by active modification.
