dc.description.abstract A procedure to maintain desired levels of O2 and CO2 inside packages that are exposed to different surrounding temperatures was designed and tested. This procedure included the design of packages for a high temperature, ambient atmosphere conditions simulating retail display conditions and the use of a controlled atmosphere (CA) environment surrounding the packages at a lower temperature simulating storage or transport conditions. To test the concept, strawberries and snap beans were held at 7°C for 4 days and 19°C for 2 days to simulate mixed storage/transport and retail display at these respective temperatures. The strawberries were stored in jars fitted with a short tube to modify the interior atmosphere; snap beans were stored in commercially available, semipermeable plastic bags. Both package types were placed in a CA of 14.8% O2 plus 8.3% CO2 at 7°C followed by storage in air at 19°C. Under these conditions, it was possible to maintain atmospheres that were close to the desired atmospheres for the products at both temperatures. en
