GEA Modified Atmosphere Packing (M.A.P.) technology is helping customers to prolong the shelf life of their powdered products. By removing oxygen from the powder and replacing with inert gas the flavor of a powdered product is maintained over a longer period.
GEA recognizes that as customer requirements for flexibility in product manufacture change, the functionality of their packing systems must also be able to accommodate this need. Using a combination of nitrogen and carbon dioxide to effectively blanket the product prior to closing the bag can increase the shelf-life up to several years - making it an ideal solution for companies wishing to bulk store products to suit their manufacturing cycle or to take advantage of seasonal demand and pricing around the world.
