    CAMBRIDGE, MD, January 30, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- During International Production & Processing Expo 2014 (IPPE), Interstate Container will showcase a wide range of poultry packaging including its pioneering Greencoat wax-free corrugated boxes at Booth # 6365 B Hall from January 28-30, 2014 at Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA. With over 15 years of experience serving leading US poultry processors, Interstate Container is a full-service supplier able to meet all poultry packaging needs from traditional wax boxes to wax-free recyclable boxes.

With a focus on customer service, Interstate Container offers customized designs that help customers leverage smart cost-saving strategies. The full-service corrugated packaging supplier strategically places warehouses across the country to ensure that customer poultry packaging is ready when needed and delivered on-time.

In order to meet the demand for sustainable packaging, Interstate Container developed wax-free, 100% recyclable corrugated boxes that effectively transport and protect poultry products in harsh environmental conditions. Greencoat wax-free boxes offer significant savings, strength and durability, as well as a reduced carbon footprint and the elimination of expensive wax disposal costs. Poultry processors and decision makers at IPPE 2014 can meet with Interstate Container representatives at booth # 6365 to experience Greencoat boxes, as well as other packaging options firsthand.

Customization & Cost-Efficiency

In order to develop packaging that fits specific customer needs, Interstate Container has a team of experts that work with clients to customize effective poultry packaging solutions. This process builds box strength, while reducing unnecessary material use, waste and costs.

Although most box producers outsource coating to third parties, Interstate Container saves time, energy, and costs by insourcing coating at two state-of-the-art production facilities in Cambridge, MD and Columbia, SC.

Greencoat wax-free boxes are easier and less costly to glue than traditional curtain coated wax boxes. Also, due to recyclability, Greencoat wax-free boxes reduce retailer costs by cutting landfill disposal fees, typically ranging from $65-$125 / ton (tipping fees & pull).

Wide Local Reach

With 30% growth over the past year, Interstate Container is adapting to the growing market need for strong, cost-efficient, and sustainable corrugated packaging.

The full-service packaging producer offers just-in-time delivery by placing warehouses near customer processing plants. With new warehouses in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, Interstate Container's wide network of warehouses facilitates transport and delivery of boxes on time, regardless of transportation and weather complications.

Strength & Reliability

Interstate Container developed FBA-certified Greencoat wax-free boxes after five years of focused R&D and on-going customer trials with Mountaire Farms. Four years later, Mountaire Farms currently ships approximately 35 million recyclable Greencoat boxes filled with poultry annually.

With tested performance, Greencoat boxes are 10% stronger than the competition, effectively safeguarding fragile products through rough handling, long transportation and storage. In an industry where packaging is exposed to varying environmental conditions, Greencoat boxes offer increased strength and withstand tremendous exposure to moisture and shifts in temperature.
Sustainability

It takes up to a hundred years for a wax-coated box to break down in a landfill. In 2013, a study by the Corrugated Packaging Association highlighted the 600% increase in annual use of recyclable coated shipping packaging for poultry, produce, seafood, and other applications.

FBA-certified Greencoat wax-free packaging is 100% recyclable, repulpable, and compostable, significantly reducing environmental impact. Since 2010, Mountaire Farms annually reduces 150,000 metric tons of carbon emissions by replacing regular petroleum-based wax-coated boxes with eco-friendly Greencoat wax-free boxes. Over the past 4 years, the shift to Greencoat has helped Mountaire Farms create an environmental benefit equivalent to planting 15 million trees.
