Albis said its oxygen scavenger offers quality improvement for long shelf life products that are sterilised such as ready meal trays and bag in box pouches for wine and fruit juices.

Roland M. Schultz, marketing manager for packaging business unit technical compounds at Albis, explained Shelfplus O2 to FoodProductionDaily.com at Emballage 2012 in Paris.

He said it absorbed the oxygen in the headspace leading to a better optical appearance after six to 12 months and better food taste.

The product is supplied as a masterbatch and can be used in flexible foils, rigid packaging, bag in box pouches for wine or fruit juices, caps and closures.
