Air Products’ Freshline® food grade gases will help extend your food products’ shelf life, improving quality and minimizing waste. Our experts will help you choosing the right food gas mixtures, depending on your products and production processes.

Oxygen causes oxidative deterioration of foods and is required for the growth of aerobic micro-organisms. Generally, oxygen should be excluded in MAP but there are often good reasons for it to be present in controlled quantities including: maintain fresh, natural colour (fresh meat), to maintain respiration
