Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) for Pears

Breathable bags and liners for fresh produce preserves pear quality and freshness during prolonged storage and shipment by-

  • Preserves color and firmness during prolonged storage by inhibiting ripening
  • Significantly reduces internal breakdown during prolonged storage
  • Eliminates condensation, reducing microbial decay and improving pear appearance
  • Preserves field fresh flavor and nutritional value

Added Value
  • Higher profitability due to less waste in the supply chain
  • Reduced logistic costs due to viability of sea and land transport over air freight
  • Smaller carbon foot print (land/sea transport instead of air freight)
  • Market expansion enabled through prolonged cold storage
