Different polymeric films and various headspace conditions (air, vacuum and four different modified atmosphere packaging) were combined to select a packaging system that assured the desired shelf life for two types of portioned Canestrato di Moliterno cheese ripened for 4 and 12 months. To evaluate the quality deterioration of the packaged cheese samples under refrigerated conditions, texture change, weight loss, water activity, moisture content, microbial contamination, pH and sensory attributes were monitored during storage. The results highlighted that a high-barrier multilayer film delayed proliferation of moulds and gave the best results for both types of ripened cheese.
