Application of Modified Atmospheric Packaging to Reduce FoodWaste: A Study with Cooked Rice

  title={Application of Modified Atmospheric Packaging to Reduce FoodWaste: A Study with Cooked Rice},
  • Published 2017
This paper deals with a new and innovative idea of active packaging to increase the shelf life of cooked food, to reduce the wastage of food due to unfavourable storage conditions. An innovative method of modified atmospheric packaging “MAP” is introduced in this article. Here we also explore the problem and remedies of wastage, spoliation and damage of cooked food. This paper contains a statistical significance of study of food spoilage in domestic, social & hospitality sector, which are based… Expand
