Environmentally-friendly GREENCOAT® wax-free boxes meet poultry processors and packers’ sustainability initiatives.

With poultry companies seeking to shift away from waxed boxes, Interstate Container’s innovative and sustainable GREENCOAT® boxes grabbed attention at the International Poultry Expo 2012. GREENCOAT® wax-alternative boxes offer a fully-recyclable, strong and moisture-resistant packaging solution for the transport of fresh, frozen and other poultry products.

Interstate Container manufacturing companies in Cambridge, MD and Columbia, SC exhibited at Booth # 5069 during the world’s largest poultry and egg exhibition. Attendees of the event met with Interstate Container representatives to learn more about the sustainable packaging solution, and had the chance to view first-hand the strength and water-resistance of GREENCOAT® boxes.

The 3-day annual event, held at Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, took place from January 24 - 26, 2012.

GREENCOAT® Wax-Free Corrugated Boxes

GREENCOAT® is a compostable, FBA-certified, 100% recyclable and repulpable packaging solution for transporting products that require durable moisture-resistant corrugated packaging. The eco-friendly box can withstand shifts from cold-to-hot environmental conditions, high exposure to moisture, rough handling, long storage and transportation.

The innovative durable corrugated container offers the same strength as waxed boxes, without the carbon footprint and disposal costs by reducing packaging that ends up in landfills. GREENCOAT® corrugated boxes pack poultry, meat, seafood, floral, and fresh fruit produce.

Interstate Container Cambridge in Cambridge, Maryland, and Interstate Container Columbia in Columbia, South Carolina manufacture GREENCOAT® boxes.
