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. Even though switching boxes was not a priority for many farmers, the financial and performance benefits has led many to do just that.

Greencoat performs from the packing shed to the customer, protecting produce from damage and 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.
