GREENCOAT® Wax-Replacement Corrugated Boxes

Interstate Container Cambridge developed GREENCOAT®, with leading poultry processor, Mountaire Farms. Interstate Container now supplies top poultry manufacturers throughout the U.S.

An award-winning product, GREENCOAT® boxes are compostable, FBA-certified 100% recyclable and repulpable. GREENCOAT® corrugated boxes withstand high exposure to moisture, rough handling, long storage and transportation, and the ins-and-outs of cold-to-hot environmental conditions.

GREENCOAT® boxes are easier to glue and offer the same strength as traditional cascaded wax boxes and curtain coated wax boxes without the carbon footprint.


First, Interstate Container does not outsource the coating of paper to third parties and, thus, controls 100% of GREENCOAT® box manufacturing process. GREENCOAT® boxes are cost neutral to current wax packaging. Furthermore, the sustainable box cuts landfill disposal fees, and customers profit from cost savings.
