  • Our Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) And Barrier Films bags and films are used for diverse food and meat applications. For case-ready applications, we offer medium and high barrier options. Because we can customize the film to accommodate various gas, flavor, and aroma requirements, these products can significantly extend product life.
