Other methods of food preservation

There are some other methods of food preservation that are used in the food industry and require special equipment, for example, irradiation and vacuum packing. Irradiation is the process of exposing food to ionising radiation in order to destroy microorganisms. Vacuum packing depends on the removal of oxygen from food packaging to prevent the growth of aerobic bacteria that will decompose the food.
