Natural Storage Systems LLC, the company behind MAPWARE, was developed by Gary Growden, a serial entrepreneur with a long history of success within the food and beverage industry. Over the past 20 years, Gary has invented multiple products for both consumers and the commercial market.
Gary was shocked when he learned of the amount of food waste in our country (over $1800/year per family) and knew there was a better way for home consumers to significantly reduce the amount of wasted and uneaten food in their homes. He knew about MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging), a technology that’s been used for over 80 years to keep foods fresh NATURALLY, using packing machines costing thousands of dollars. Through extensive research and testing, he was able to create a full set of simple, affordable MAP Compliant Storageware that finally allowed consumers to recreate MAP packaging right in their own homes, for just pennies per use!
MAPWARE has been recognized internationally, and was awarded the “Inventors Recognition Award” for the “Most Innovative and Best New Invention” for 2017 by the International Housewares Association.
