There are many different ways for packing vegetables, but what is the best way to pack vegetables?
But because the nature of different vegetables is different, so the best way to pack different vegetables are different. We can only choose a suitable way to pack vegetables.
 Ways to pack vegetables

Here are several common vegetable packaging ways:
1. Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP)
A technique used for prolonging the shelf-life of fresh vegetables. The air surrounding the vegetables in the package is changed to another composition.
2. Equilibrium modified atmosphere packaging (EMAP)
Among fresh-cut vegetable, EMAP is the most commonly used packaging technology. When packaging vegetables, the gas atmosphere of package is of a lowered level of O2 and a heightened level of CO2. This kind of package slows down the normal respiration of the product to prolong its shelf-life.
3. Shrink wrap packaging
Shrink film is a material made up of polymer plastic film. When heating, it shrinks tightly over whatever it is covering. It can prolong shelf life, protection from the environment, and convenient-to-prepare.
4. Vacuum packaging
It is a method of packaging that removes air from the package prior to sealing. It involves placing items in a plastic film package, removing air from inside, and sealing the package. This extends the shelf life.
No matter which method you choose, you need to choose a packaging film first. When you choose a packaging film, consider the following points:
gas permeability, water vapour transmission rate, mechanical properties, transparency, type of package, sealing reliability. Appropriate packaging film and proper method to effectively extend the shelf life of vegetables.
