Annual Meat Conference 2013 Provides Insight into Meat Industry Trends

Interstate Resources News homepage: http://news.interstateresources.com
 

Interstate Container, the nation’s second largest poultry packaging supplier, to meet with industry professionals at the 2013 Meat Conference in Nashville, TN.  

Two key members of the Interstate Container sales team will meet with industry professionals from all over the country at the 2013 Meat Conference in Nashville, TN from 24 - 26 February (Gaylord Opryland Resort). Jeff Cormier, National Sales and Marketing Manager, and Anne Potterton, Sales Account Manager, will be on hand to offer insights on how meat producers can pull costs out of their packaging supply chain without compromising strength or quality.

As creators of the pioneering Greencoat® wax-free corrugated packaging solution, Interstate Container is well-qualified to educate meat industry professionals on a variety of topics, including:

  • Generating revenue through recycling corrugated waste
  • Identifying and improving packaging inefficiencies that are stealing from the bottom line
  • Designing customized boxes to meet specific packaging needs more intelligently
  • Applying the concept of sustainability throughout the supply chain
  • Understanding the differences between competing approaches to “wax-free” packaging
Cormier and Potterton will also be able to speak to the differences between traditional and wax-free corrugated boxes, and why more and more meat processors are responding to increasing customer demand and enhancing their own profits by choosing eco-friendly packaging.
