Interstate Container Delivers Greencoat® Wax-Free Boxes: “Packaging with a Purpose”

With a 20% annual growth rate in sales, poultry processors are increasingly choosing Interstate Container as supplier of pioneering strong, sustainable packaging solutions.

In an industry where packaging must withstand cold-to-hot environmental conditions and exposure to moisture, poultry processors find difficulty requesting 100% recyclable packaging solutions as well.  With environmental consciousness at an all-time high, however, poultry processors need a proven, eco-friendly packaging solution to meet increasing customer demand and environmental regulations.  Since 2009, Interstate Container’s revolutionary Greencoat® packaging line meets poultry industry needs for strong yet sustainable packaging.

Greencoat® boxes match the strength of traditional corrugated wax boxes. Entirely wax-free and recyclable, Greencoat® boxes also eliminate waste disposal costs, decrease glue costs, and significantly reduce processors’ overall carbon footprint. With over 4 million Greencoat® boxes shipping every month and a 20% annual growth rate in sales, Interstate Container is poised to continue its leading role in producing cost-effective, sustainable packaging.

Interstate Container will be exhibiting at the International Production & Processing Expo 2013 from January 29-31 in Atlanta, GA – Booth #6565.
