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.
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.
