Sustainability at Interstate Resources: GREENCOAT™. . .Strength and Sustainability

For OUTBOUND home page, go to http://outbound.indevcogroup.com

Interstate Resources has published a series of PDF files about the U.S. corrugated manufacturing group's sustainability efforts. Download this story at:

How can a packaging supplier “green” their impact on the wholesale transfer packaging supply chain and make a positive impact on the environment? If there is a solution, how can the packaging supplier distinguish themselves from all other packaging suppliers?

Packaging supplier Interstate Container Cambridge collaborated with major poultry processor Mountaire Farms to develop a patent pending, high-performance, wax replacement, recyclable box. This box has excellent meat release properties and, in tandem with a change from ice pack boxes to modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), has lowered costs, streamlined the supply chain and reduced an estimated 100,000 tons of greenhouse gases for Mountaire Farms. This is equivalent to a yearly savings of greenhouse gas emissions from 364,262 passenger vehicles.

Interstate Container Cambridge created GREENCOAT, a unique name that ideally portrays the application. GREENCOAT is environmentally sensitive in many ways. This brand is at the forefront of recyclable, greener packaging methods and initiatives.

Interstate Container Cambridge needed to positively represent their wax replacement brand to illustrate its strength, water resistance, sustainability, and characteristics. When you see an elephant holding an umbrella, think of Interstate Container Cambridge. The logo represents toughness and durability while also portraying smart water repellant technology and environmental sustainability.

Considerable capital and many years were devoted to researching and developing their new GREENCOAT process. This cost neutral wax replacement procedure meets or exceeds most waxed box performance and is recyclable, repulpable and compostable. Custom retailer possibilities are endless when packing poultry, produce, seafood and many other products.

So look for the GREENCOAT elephant holding an umbrella, the new standard in wax replacement packaging.

You and GREENCOAT, working in tandem to help preserve the future.

The interview addresses INDEVCO operations in the local Egyptian market. Emile Boustany, General Manager of Interstate Paper Industries and prior General Manager of Unipak Nile, represented INDEVCO due to his extensive experience and knowledge in the Egyptian Market.

Read the full article in Arabic

During the interview, Boustany covered various topics discussing how INDEVCO entered the Egyptian market, the steps taken and challenges faced, as well as future prospects and investments, and how INDEVCO gives back to the Egyptian community.

In the first part of the interview, Boustany explains Unipak Nile’s journey to becoming a fully-operational manufacturing plant in Egypt and how it began as an exporter of corrugated packaging for oranges. Unipak Nile currently produces corrugated packaging for the industrial, agricultural and retail sectors.

The interview continued to cover the reasons behind why Unipak Nile stands out from other manufacturers in the market. Unipak Nile is one of the few manufacturers that are ISO 9001:2000 and HACCP certified.
