Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
Storage Life Extension of Fresh Produce
Amcor's LifeSpan Box Liners, Bin Liners and Pallet Shrouds are an innovation in post-harvest packaging that extend the storage and marketing life of fresh produce. Used commercially for over 15 years, Amcor, through its LifeSpan product range, leads the world in bulk Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP). MAP is an important packaging component for many of the world's leading fresh produce exporters.
Costs, Sales and Quality Advantages
Amcor's LifeSpan Modified Atmosphere packaging delivers cost-savings on behalf of fresh produce-growing and packing communities and also enables the delivery of high quality produce to distant markets.
The MAP technology enables perishable products like cherries to be transported by sea-freight, rather than by more costly air freight, whilst maintaining quality standards. During times of over-supply, many users are able to store fresh produce until market demand recovers.
