Food contact packaging - DS Smith

Greencoat® is the only wax-free, 100% recyclable, food contact-safe packaging.

If you are in an industry that packs and ships cold and wet products, performance is a critical factor when designing and implementing a packaging solution.

U.S. retailers and restaurants pay approximately $50 million annually to dispose of roughly 1.47 million tons of wax boxes used to pack and ship cold and wet products.

Greencoat is a coated, water resistant packaging solution that provides the same performance characteristics as wax coated boxes but is 100% recyclable, saving your customers wax disposal fees and creating a revenue stream from recycling.

Over the last five years, 377,469 tons of Greencoat wax replacement boxes were recycled instead of the same amount of wax-coated boxes landfilled, which has reduced greenhouse gas emissions drastically.
