What is Fresh Box?

          Fresh Box is a home food packaging system that safely preserves food up to 5x longer while maintaining the taste, texture, and nutrients of your food. Fresh Box helps home users eat healthier, save money, and reduce waste. By scaling down a proven, industrial food preservation technology to fit into the home kitchen, we enable users to increase their access to fresh food and reduce food waste.


How it Works

          Fresh Box uses Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) technology to eliminate Oxygen from the atmosphere surrounding the stored food. MAP technology has been used to lengthen the shelf life of foods and is the current food packaging industry standard for food preservation. Varying ratios of these two gases allows for optimized conditions to be created for each type of food.


The System

          Fresh Box includes a set of compressed gas canisters with varying ratios of N2 to CO2. A simple, push-button interface on the countertop unit makes it easy to select the ideal conditions for your food. To ensure an airtight seal, Fresh Box offers a line of high-quality food storage containers that are durable, stackable, and dishwasher and microwave safe. The lids are designed to easily connect to the countertop unit.

 
 

3 Simple Steps

1) Place food in storage container and secure lid

2) Connect storage container to countertop unit and select food group

3) Disconnect storage container after 10 seconds and store food as usual

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is Modified Atmosphere Packaging?

A: Modified Atmosphere Packaging, or MAP, technology is the process of modifying the composition of the internal atmosphere of a package in order to improve the shelf life of the contents. MAP has been used in the industrial food packaging industry since the 1970s. Today MAP is widely used and is among the top food packaging techniques on the industrial side. Fresh Box is the first to bring MAP and its numerous benefits to the home user.

Q: Is MAP safe?

A: Yes. The gasses used are all 100% food safe and are non-toxic, nonflammable, and non-explosive. MAP does not affect the orgnic characteristic of food.

Q: What kinds of food work with Fresh Box?

A: Fresh Box works with all kinds of foods including meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, breads, and leftovers.

Q: How can I get a Fresh Box system?

 

Q: How is Fresh Box superior to a vacuum sealer?

Fresh Box takes food preservation a step further than vacuum sealers by not only removing Oxygen, but also filling the package with an atmosphere that inhibits bacterial growth. In addition, Fresh Box will not crush your food, does not waste plastic, and can be used to preserve liquids.


What is MAP?


Modified Atmosphere Packaging

If you have ever eaten a bag of chips, served a bagged salad, or eaten prepackaged meat, then you've already taken advantage of the benefits of Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP).  Since the 1970s, MAP technology has been used as a way to lengthen the shelf life of a variety of foods such as meats, fruits, vegetables, seafood, breads and dairy. MAP works by changing the original atmosphere, or air, around your food when packaged. The original air contains oxygen, which encourages bacterial growth and causes food to spoil. Replacing it with a new all-natual and food safe atmosphere greatly slows the food spoilage process. The new atmospheres supplied are all-natural and food safe gas mixtures that act as a protective layer around your food. Different foods have different needs, so different mixtures work best with different foods. Storing your food with the best protective layer around it ensures your food stays fresh as long as possible. Modified Atmosphere Packaging is commonly used around the world and is a top food preservation technique throughout the food packaging industries. MAP has numerous benefits and Fresh Box is excited to be the first and only system bringing it into the home. For much more information on MAP, click here.
