C. "In which to" seems akward.
D. Changes the meaning - "boxes" is not required
E. Same as D

Product - singular, therefore boxes should be singular. D E are out.
The disposable is correct, eliminate C.
Where is for places, A seems best imo

B,C,E are out at first glance.

Between A and D IMO, we have to use IN WHICH rather than INSIDE WHICH.
