As a poultry processor, you know it’s important to use high-performance packaging to keep your products fresh throughout the entire supply chain. Water-resistant boxes can do the job, but Greencoat can do it better — and for less. Sustainable, wax-free and water-resistant, Greencoat coated boxes and trays are the ultimate recyclable poultry packaging solution that’s also 10% stronger than the competition. You simply can’t find it anywhere else either. The result of five years of research and development, Greencoat helps you:

  • Protect your products and the environment
  • Get paid for your waste instead of paying to dispose of wax-coated corrugated packaging
  • Save money because Greencoat boxes are more affordable than wax curtain coated boxes and less costly to glue

Global Green USA Sustainable Design Awards: Interstate Container & Mountaire Farms


Ron Pittington, Director of Purchasing, Mountaire Farms

“When it comes to high performance corrugated boxes of various designs, Mountaire’s go-to is Interstate Container. They’re more than just a material supply source to us. They’re a key partner in Mountaire’s continuing success. Our business relationship began in the late 1990’s. Interstate Container transitioned into Mountaire’s 100% corrugated source in 2006, and they remain so today. In 2012, Mountaire established a Visionary & Innovation Packaging Group, with Interstate Container as a key participant helping lead Mountaire throughout this century. We’re extremely pleased to be associated with the whole Interstate Container team and look further to a long-lasting partnership."
