Rapid expansion of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) for horticultural produce has occurred during the last 10 years, especially for fresh cut (minimally processed) products, but limitations to further expansion reside in both responses of products and available technology. We introduce the workshop on Modified Atmosphere Packaging—Toward 2000 and Beyond by reviewing the current status of MAP technology for fresh and minimally processed products, highlighting research needs and future advances, and providing a list of selected references on MAP published since 1989.
