Solid Bottom THATBox™ Designed Seafood Carton- 
Tough enough to handle it, smart enough to be recyclable


Typical wax coatings cannot be recycled because they do not dissolve in water, so they create problems in the repulping process. The industry has worked diligently to develop recyclable alternatives, many of which are now becoming commercially available.

Combine THATBox™ with the recyclable wax alternatives and you have a “non-stapled” carton that is ready for packing and recyclable.

THATBox™ Seafood Boxes- Testimonial

As an industry leader in sustainability, we wanted to extend our efforts into packaging. Working with THATBox’s patented design and combining it with the 100% recyclable wax alternative board they offer has created the strength and longevity we needed to ship product to our customers. The challenges of packing fresh products in a wet environment has always depended on wax boxes that are not recyclable and require stapling together boxes to pre-build inventory for the day’s needs.  By partnering with THATBox, we have successfully developed a recyclable option that comes in flat and “Pop’s” open ready for use.  The cartons arrive flat and open quickly, which has saved us on labor and space in our pack-out process. Freight movement and handling have been reduced by a 9 to 1 ratio by using THATBox  pre-glued boxes. Never again will we need to pre-build boxes prior to our production!  Just recently, our industry has issued a mandate for the removal of staples from packaging.  Our proactive actions in have us ahead of the curve with a solution in place using the THATBox design glued box.

This has been a win for everyone. Our customer saves money by not paying to dispose of wax boxes and everyone likes taking the waste out of the landfills.  We continue to work with THATBox Design to develop new innovations in packaging designs for our industry.
