GREENCOAT® FRESH PRODUCE BOXES & TRAYS

When you're handling produce, your packaging must work, period, no matter what fruits and vegetables you're shipping. So when we developed Greencoat coated boxes, we made sure that they were 10% stronger than the competition…and environmentally-friendly at the same time.

Greencoat protects vegetables and fruit from the packing shed to the customer. In addition to being farm friendly, though, Greencoat was specifically designed to replace costly non-recyclable wax boxes and to save you money - whether you’re a farmer, a retailer, a foodservice distributor, or a restaurant chain - by being 100% recyclable, coated, strong, and water-repellent. You no longer need to pay wax removal fees and, instead, create a revenue stream from recycling Greencoat boxes.

Ask for side-by-side trial with your current packaging. Greencoat by Interstate Container is the future of moisture-resistant sustainable packaging.
