Greencoat® - Poultry Boxes
Interstate Container is now DS Smith

GREENCOAT® was Developed with the Poultry Industry for the Poultry Industry

Greencoat® was developed through a unique partnership between Interstate Container and Mountaire Farms, one of the largest poultry processors in the U.S. In 2004, Mountaire saw that U.S. retailers and restaurants were growing weary of the monetary and environmental costs associated with disposing of wax boxes used to pack and ship cold and wet products. Mountaire joined forces with Interstate Container to develop a recyclable, wax replacement box.

Today, Greencoat® has revolutionized packaging in the poultry industry and is being used by leading processors in the business. It is shipped all over the world and the boxes don’t fail.

Greencoat® is proven to perform better than any competitive recyclable wax replacement solution. Poultry processors that have switched from wax to Greencoat® are confident in its performance throughout the supply chain from their processing operations to their customers’ coolers. Plus Greencoat® is produced using cutting edge preprint technology enabling you to showcase your brand better than ever in a retail or wholesale distribution environment.

“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."
