DS Smith Brand Logo: Greencoat


Greencoat® was Developed with the Poultry Industry - for the Poultry Industry

Greencoat® was developed through a unique partnership between DS Smith 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 DS Smith 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.
