Macaroons under Aroma MAP

Freshline® Aroma MAP™ System

Empower your Modified Atmosphere Packaged (MAP) products with natural aromas

It is believed that 75% of our emotions are triggered by smell.

Imagine the possibility of providing a unique experience to your customers by injecting a precise amount of natural aromas, such as essential oils, into your modified atmosphere packaging gas stream, without any additional production steps.

Our Freshline® Aroma MAP system can do that for you, whether you are using a couple of cylinders a month, have an onsite gas generator or anything in between.
