Each ALIGAL protective atmosphere has been scientifically formulated to address the specific shelf life requirements of a wide selection of foods, ranging from case-ready meats, fresh poultry, processed meats, cheese and freshly cut salads to prepared entrées, fresh pasta, sandwich kits, snack foods and bakery products.
ALIGAL gases are available in a range of blends appropriate to specific foods and meet standards for approved food packaging uses.
