Overview

BreatheWay® technology – Keeping it Fresh by Design

BreatheWay® membranes are designed to naturally extend the shelf life of virtually any fresh product that would benefit from reduced oxygen levels and managed carbon dioxide levels. Our unique membrane solution manages all gas transfer requirements for the package, leaving more flexibility for the balance of the package to meet shipping or merchandising requirements. 

The adjustable selectivity ratio and temperature switch features of the BreatheWay® membrane allow the flexibility to meet the specific modified atmosphere requirements for a wide range of products throughout the total supply chain.

In use since 1995 on Apio Inc's Eat Smart fresh cut vegetable line, this technology was the first to enable iceless broccoli shipments to both domestic and export markets. BreatheWay® packaging solutions can be easily implemented at virtually any packing facility as no chemicals or sophisticated equipment beyond a sealing machine is needed. While there are several technologies currently on the market that are designed to deliver ‘modified atmosphere packaging’ (or MAP) there are some critical differences between these technologies and the BreatheWay® solution.

In use since 1995, this technology has been approved for use in the U.S. and abroad.
