Application of Modified Atmospheric Packaging in Cut Flower Packaging

In order to extend the postharvest life of the cut flowers, manufacturers make use of advanced packaging solutions such as modified atmospheric packaging (MAP) technology. This aids in maintaining the moisture content inside the package which results in increased shelf life. Longer shelf life of cut flowers allows processors, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to control quality, and costs of cut flowers. Cut flower manufacturers take advantage of extended replacement cycles to reduce production replacement demands. Cut flower packaging distributors can expand their operational territories and offer a greater variety of product lines to the retailers, since less frequent replacement requirements will permit growth in under-penetrated areas for cut flowers as well as cut flower packaging formats.
