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. Interstate Container Cambridge and Interstate Container Columbia produce the sustainable corrugated boxes that pack poultry, meat, seafood, floral and fresh fruit and vegetable produce.

GREENCOAT® durable wax-free boxes withstand high exposure to moisture, rough handling, long storage and transportation, and shifts from cold-to-hot environmental conditions. They are also easier to glue than waxed boxes.

Interstate Container plants do not outsource the coating of paper to third parties. The packaging manufacturer controls 100% of GREENCOAT's manufacturing process, increasing cost effectiveness. Furthermore, GREENCOAT® wax-free packaging eliminates landfill disposal fees.

Interstate Container Cambridge invested 5 years of R&D to develop and successfully trial GREENCOAT wax-free corrugated boxes with leading Delaware-based poultry processor, Mountaire Farms.

Two of the largest poultry plants in the US have converted completely to GREENCOAT® wax-alternative packaging and Interstate Container currently ships 3,200,000 GREENCOAT® boxes/month.
