A package for packaging a meat product.

The meat product may have a conversion rate of oxymyoglobin to deoxymyoglobin with less than 5% metmyoglobin remaining on the surface of the meat product within a time period of 36 hours or less. The present invention may also be used in a low oxygen environment package, such as vacuum skin packaging.
