For ice-packed products, you depend on high-performance packaging to keep seafood, salmon and other fish fresh from the catch to the customer. You need water-resistant boxes that you can trust. And while your customers are asking for sustainable options, you also need to deliver strong packaging with lower costs.

You can do it now with Greencoat, a coated, 100% sustainable, wax-free, water-resistant corrugated box. A result of five years of research and development, Greencoat protects your product, your bottom line, and the environment.

Greencoat is just as durable as non-recyclable packaging with benefits that go far beyond the box. It’s also less expensive than non-recyclable boxes—and it eliminates waste removal fees for your customers. Unlike EPS, Greencoat ships flat, saving you valuable shipping and storage space. Where other packaging cracks or breaks, Greencoat stands up to the constant rigor of transporting your seafood to ensure your products are delivered as promised.

Greencoat by Interstate Container is the future of moisture-resistant packaging.

Eddie Gonzales, Sales Representative, New Orleans Fish House

"From a business perspective, it makes perfect sense. Our customers don't want to bear the costs of landfilling boxes, so recyclable packaging is an added value that we can offer. It's the next step in our evolution."
