Five Reasons to Visit Interstate Container at International Production & Processing Expo 2013

Interstate Container will showcase Greencoat® wax-free boxes at Booth # 6565 from January 29 - 31 at IPPE 2013 in Atlanta, GA.

Cambridge, MD, January 30, 2013 --( At IPPE 2013, poultry processors and producers will be able to see Interstate Container’s FBA-certified Greencoat® boxes, a sustainable wax-free packaging solution. Attendees can visit Interstate Container Booth #6565 and meet with representatives during the event from January 29 - 31 at Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA.

Five Reasons to Visit Interstate Container Booth #6565:

1) Experience Greencoat®’s Strength

Visitors can experience a dramatic display of Greencoat®’s strength by walking across a life-size Greencoat® corrugated bridge in Interstate Container’s booth. During the event, interested parties can compare wax boxes to Greencoat® boxes first hand.

Greencoat® wax-free boxes match the strength of traditional wax boxes and can withstand shifts from cold-to-hot, rough handling, long storage and transportation.

2) Test Greencoat®’s Water-Resistance

Greencoat® boxes have been field-tested and are proven to withstand exposure to moisture. At Interstate Container’s booth, attendees can view a fun display of fish swimming in Greencoat® box pond and can watch videos demonstrating Greencoat®’s water-resistance properties and strength.

3) Improve Your Sustainability Program

IPPE attendees can meet with Interstate Container representatives to discuss and evaluate their current sustainability program, as well as look into how their company can improve their environmental impact by using Greencoat®. Visitors and representatives can discuss trends and look into what retailers demand from sustainable packaging.

Greencoat® wax-free boxes are 100% recyclable, repulpable, and compostable. These sustainable boxes significantly reduce an organization’s environmental impact and carbon footprint, while wax-coated boxes require a hundred years to break down in a landfill. Attendees can also request a side-by-side trial of Greencoat® boxes and their current packaging.

4) Learn How to Reduce Costs & Cut Waste in Half with Greencoat®

Greencoat® boxes are cost-neutral to wax boxes. Booth visitors can learn how Greencoat® can cut box room waste in half and slash landfill disposal fees at the same time.

Interstate Container plants do not outsource the coating of paper to third parties, which further increases cost effectiveness. Greencoat® boxes are easier to glue than wax-coated boxes and don’t require expensive wax glues.

5) Learn About Interstate Container’s New Capabilities to Serve the Southern U.S.

With growing demand for strong and sustainable wax-free corrugated packaging, Interstate Container opened a new plant in Columbia, SC in 2011. IPPE attendees can learn about Interstate’s new Columbia, SC facility, as well as how Interstate Container has expanded into locations in Mississippi, Alabama and Ohio.

Interstate Container can meet attendees’ packaging needs nationwide by leveraging its large warehousing network in the U.S, as well as its parent company Interstate Resources’ size and US and International presence.
