This year, Chrysal is introducing no fewer than 5 new innovations at the IFTF (3-5 November) in Vijfhuizen and the Trade Fair in Aalsmeer: the new sustainable Arrive Alive Eco, bio-based flower food, Flower Gel, Liquid Sachet on String, and Vident.
Arrive Alive Eco
The online sale of flowers has increased enormously worldwide. Consumers resort to online and mobile shopping, and with a simple click, a beautiful arrangement is delivered to their home. It is essential to keep your flowers fresh during delivery. Chrysal introduces a sustainable solution; Arrive Alive Eco, an environmentally friendly flower wrap that preserves the condition of cut flowers during transport. The flower wrap is made from renewable resources and is fully compostable, keeping flowers fresh and reducing water consumption and flower waste in the chain. Arrive Alive Eco has been nominated for a Greenovation Award for the best sustainable product introduction in floriculture of the year.
Bio-based flower food
After having introduced a complete line of sustainable packaging consisting of paper, Recyclable plastic, and Compostable sachet, Chrysal is now introducing their bio-based flower food. All the sustainable sachets contain 99% bio-based flower food, with all the ingredients coming from renewable resources, such as plants. This way, flowers stay beautiful for longer and your customers can enjoy their flowers up to 60% longer.
Liquid Sachet on String
Until now, it was only possible to automatically attach a powder sachet of flower food to bouquets. Liquid flower food sticks, preferred by many retailers and consumers, had to be attached manually, which took a lot of time and labor, but with the introduction of Liquid Sachet on String, it is now possible to automatically attach liquid flower food sticks to bouquets. For this innovation, Chrysal worked closely with Bercomex, who developed the application machine for this concept. This total solution reduces production, storage, transportation, and labor costs, and also helps address the need for more spread-out working conditions relating to Covid-19.
Botrytis is one of the most common flower problems. This fungal disease causes flowers to not fully develop, gradually turning brown, and eventually, all the petals may fall off. It is an irreversible process and is responsible for huge flower losses in the supply chain, but now there is Chrysal Vident. Vident is the only registered anti-Botrytis post-harvest treatment in the Netherlands. It significantly reduces the risk of Botrytis, is safe to use, and is highly effective.
Chrysal Flower Gel is a (patent pending) gel to easily and conveniently keep your flowers hydrated during transport. It is a bio-based gel made of water and clay, which is environmentally friendly. Flower Gel maintains the water source during transport and thus keeps flowers hydrated. With Flower Gel there is no ‘free water’ and therefore no spills, damage, and complaints from customers, and it is easy to use. Your flowers stay hydrated from the packer to the customer. Combining Chrysal Flower Gel with Arrive Alive Eco offers a complete flower delivery solution
