Greencoat® - Fresh Produce Boxes

GREENCOAT® Meets the Demands of the Produce Industry and Improves Profitability

Greencoat® was introduced to the produce industry in 2011 with the understanding that farmers have been comfortable with wax boxes for decades. With the grueling demands of your livelihoods, the last thing you want to think about is changing your box. You just need your boxes to perform. Yet, since the produce industry is continuously being squeezed financially by its customers, many of your fellow farmers have taken a look at their packaging as a way of boosting their bottom lines. Those that have tried Greencoat® are pleased to find that it performs from the packing shed to the customer and protects their produce from damage. Their fruits and vegetables consistently arrive in good shape enabling prompt payment.

Greencoat® is less expensive than wax and pays for itself quickly by reducing waste, improving operations, increasing sales and decreasing customers’ waste removal fees. Farmers that switch to Greencoat® never go back to wax because it provides the same strength and performance as wax coated boxes, but is 100% recyclable and repulpable, which saves money and is significantly better for the environment.

Nothing performs like strong, sustainable Greencoat®. Contact us and ask for side-by-side trial with your current packaging >
