Why Choose Greencoat® as a Fresh Produce Packaging Solution?
Interstate Container invested five years of research and development to develop and trial Greencoat® sustainable boxes. The compostable FBA-certified corrugated boxes offer sustainable solutions for companies in need of strong and moisture-resistant corrugated packaging.
Greencoat® boxes are being used up and down the east coast to protect and preserve fresh produce such as cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, peaches, peppers, squash, tomatoes, and yams, in addition to seedlings.
Wax-coated boxes require a hundred years to break down in a landfill. Greencoat® wax-free boxes are 100% recyclable and repulpable, and can significantly reduce an organization’
Strength and Durability
Greencoat® boxes withstand shifts from cold-to-hot environmental conditions, rough handling, long storage and transportation, and exposure to moisture. These durable boxes provide the same strength of traditional cascaded and curtain coated wax boxes, and are easier to glue as well.
Greencoat® boxes are economically competitive and cost-neutral to wax boxes. Interstate Container’s plants do not outsource the coating of paper to third parties; they account for 100% of Greencoat® boxes manufacturing process, which increases cost effectiveness. Producers who use Greencoat® also save by cutting landfill disposal fees.
Interested parties can meet Interstate Container representatives in Booth #228-230 at the SE Regional Fruit & Vegetable Conference to learn more about Greencoat® technology, request samples or arrange side-by-side packaging trials at their production facility.
