Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)

Controlling the atmosphere around a food product is key to extending shelf life while maintaining freshness and attractiveness. Our experts understand the importance of gas flush packaging, a process that replaces package headspace with a beneficial gas, or mixture of gases, to inhibit bacterial growth and oxidative reactions. Extending shelf life with MAP means fewer product returns, less waste, higher customer satisfaction and manufacturing and distribution optimization. Air Liquide was one of the first to gain patents in modified atmosphere solutions. Our experts understand that packaging material and equipment is as vital as the right mixture of gas. Air Liquide’s technical support teams provide on-the-spot expertise for gas packaging.



We include on-site gas mixers in our range of equipment for industrial gases.


Our on-site services include process analysis and optimization, installation and start-up support, inspection and maintenance. We offer gas management services alongside our bulk-gas supply solutions.
