Rumor has it that NZ uses pressurized CO2 to pack meat.  The idea is
ingenious.  CO2 lowers pH.  That is, it makes it more acid.  Acid
environments slow the growth of almost all bacteria.  CO2 dissolves in
water based fluids.  The CO2 disappears when food is cooked (visualize
how fast a can of pop loses fizz when warm).

I do not know how hard it is to get food quality CO2 and manifold
apparatus to use on meat...and fruit, of course.  Must stay on topic

Just a thought.
