MAP Bag for Gilroy Foods


Due to regulation changes, a food ingredient company needed to find a new way to ship chili pepper to European customers while still maintaining product quality.


Work Performed:

Developed a large (50-lb.) MAP bag for ground chili pepper and defined the filling/gassing process.


The new package was successfully filled and shipped. The new package was then used for all European shipments. It made it possible for the company to keep those customers that otherwise would have been lost. Testing had shown that the MAP packaging maintained product quality at the required levels and met the shelf-life requirements.

Materials Consulting for Nu Skin

Recommended new pouch film specification for the product and potential sources. Tests with the new film proved the elimination of supplement degradation. The company shifted all of these supplements to this type of film.
