What is Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)

MAP is a proven technology that was developed to ensure that packaged food products stay fresh and attractive for as long as possible. Used by food packaging industry since the 1930s'

Everyone knows that food does not stay fresh forever. Bread and chips stale, cheese dries and gets moldy, meat develops a brown color and an "off" smell, fruit and vegetables get slimy and spoil, even wine will oxidize.                                                                                                           

Oxygen in the air can cause a process of decay called oxidation.  MAP is an exchange of air inside a package to extend the shelf life of food and other products.

Glass Bowls with Mapware

Mapware bowls, Zip-N-Zap bags, MAP-Tech Lids and Snap-N-Zap Caps allow the application of MAP inside the container, extending the shelf life of stored products


Natural and organic                        

Note: Nothing is sprayed on the food. The air is simply exchanged around the food
