WHY? WHAT? HOW? OF MAP
Why MAP Technology?
- Brand image,
- Extended shelf life,
- Sensory aspects.
What is the MAP? Science behind MAP Technology?
Modified atmosphere - Atmospheric air is combination of 3 elements N2 - (79%) O2 - (20.96%) C02 - (0.04%), traces of inert gases & vapor
In MAP technology we modify the combination of these gases depending upon the nature of the product to be packed.
What different kinds of equipment/ components are being used?
- Gas mixer
- Gas analyser
- Barrier film
MAP Technology - Advantages
- Maintaining the quality throughout the manufacturing process (GMP) (GHP)
- Maintaining protocols for food safety and HACCP
- Consistent productivity with limited manpower
- Can handle variety of products and capable of handling different SKU sizes
MAP Technology - Benefits
- Shelf life extension
- Waste minimisation (profit maximization)
- Reduced need of artificial preservatives
- Increased distribution possibilities

MAP TO CONTROL MICRO ORGANISMS
MAP can control 4 types of micro - organisms:
- Aerobic Microbes – requires oxygen or air for respiration and growth.
- Anaerobic Microbes - do not require oxygen or air to grow.
- Microaerophilic Microbes – requires low level of oxygen for optimum growth.
- Facultative Anaerobic microbes - can respire and grow with/ without the presence of oxygen.
Shelf - life and food spoilage
- Remain safe
- Be certain to retain desired sensory, chemical, physical and microbiological characteristics
- Comply with any label declaration of nutritional data when stored and handled under the recommended data
What influences shelf – life
- Raw materials
- Product formulation
- Packaging, including gas atmosphere
- Consumer handling
