“Flower Food for Thought” packet designs inspire consumers

Floralife, a division of Smithers-Oasis Company, is launching “Flower Food for Thought” packaging designs for its flower food packets. The new program was developed to educate and engage consumers in their floral purchases and impart good care and handling tips, as well as fun facts about flowers.

Created with fun and nontechnical messaging to encourage consumers to use their flower food packets, the program includes 60 different designs in three different categories: care and handling, flower meaning and fun facts.
Using the packet packaging as a mini-billboard, each sachet carries an entertaining design and message. For example, a packet design depicts a dehydrated flower yelling out, “I’m thirsty,” and the reverse side of the sachet provides instructions on quenching the flower’s thirst stating, “Flower food solution keeps me fed, hydrated and fabulous!”

In North America, “Flower Food for Thought” designs are available in Floralife Express Technology and Crystal Clear in powder packets that treat 1 liter (1 quart) and 0.5 liter (1 pint) amounts of water. The packets are packaged in matching themed dispenser boxes in quantities of 100 and 200 and are also available in bulk boxes for a total of eight different packs.
“Our goal is to educate the world about flowers!” said Sharon Mikulinski, Global Marketing Manager, Floralife. “As experts in flower care, we are in a unique position to do this, and our ‘Flower Food for Thought’ program is a fun and engaging approach to accomplish that goal. We can all agree that an educated consumer is a repeat purchase, and a growing educated consumer base means a growing floral industry.”
Millions of Floralife flower food packets reach consumers globally on a yearly basis, providing an opportunity to educate consumers about proper care and handling in an entertaining way. Customers that are educated on the importance of caring for their fresh cut flowers and use flower food are likely to have a satisfied, positive experience with their flower purchase and a solid reason to return when it is time to purchase again.
“We are caring for and educating the floral industry… one bloom at a time,” added Mikulinski.
