Interstate Container Showcases Sustainable Greencoat® Boxes at the SE Regional Fruit & Vegetab

Interstate Container, US corrugated packaging manufacturer, exhibits sustainable, wax-free, stay-fresh, and water resistant Greencoat® boxes at Southeast Regional Fruit & Vegetable Conference 2014.

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - Jan. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- At SERFVC, Interstate Container will introduce Greencoat® wax-free boxes to farmers and packers at Booth # 429 – 431 from January 10 – 12, 2014 at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center in Savannah, GA. Greencoat® boxes offer growers and packers the necessary strength and durability to ensure protection and safe delivery of fragile fruits and vegetables during shipment without increasing customer costs.

Interstate Container booth visitors can meet with representatives to learn about how Greencoat® corrugated boxes offer:
•   Significant savings by ending costly wax cascaded carton disposal fees
•   Stronger and safer packaging made for field and shed packing
•   Reduced carbon footprint

At the booth visitors will also experience Greencoat® performance first-hand and can schedule side-by-side trials  with their current packaging.

Greencoat® Box Strength & Durability

Interstate Container invested five years of focused R&D and on-going customer trials to develop the FBA-certified Greencoat® wax-free boxes which are 10% stronger than traditional wax coated boxes and offer suppliers a customized packaging solution.

With tested performance, water-resistant Greencoat® boxes offer a durable packaging solution for long transportation and storage which can withstand exposure to moisture, shifts in temperature, and rough handling. Greencoat® boxes pack fresh produce, such as cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, peaches, peppers, squash, tomatoes, and yams, in addition to seedlings.

Greencoat® Box Cost Efficiency

Greencoat® boxes are easier and less costly to glue than traditional cascaded and curtain coated wax boxes. The wax-free recyclable box cuts landfill disposal fees, basically ranging from $65-$125 / ton (tipping fees & pull).

In order to develop customized packaging, Interstate Container appoints experienced produce packaging experts to work with customers to build strength and decrease costs by reducing unnecessary material use and waste.
