Chrysal Arrive Alive® Eco

One of the highlighted products of Chrysal at their IFTF booth is Chrysal Arrive Alive® Eco. Chrysal Arrive Alive® Eco is also nominated for the Greenovation Award 2021 because it's the sustainable solution to keep flowers hydrated during transport. Chrysal Arrive Alive® Eco is an eco-friendly flower packaging that preserves the condition of cut flowers during transport. The flower wrap and bag are made from renewable resources and are fully compostable. Arrive Alive® Eco gives you the advantages of shipping flowers horizontally without the risk of water spillage. Florists can also offer Arrive Alive® Eco as an extra service to their customers: they can travel long distances or buy a bouquet a day early reassured that their flowers will arrive fresh. The Greenovation Award 2021 is for the best sustainable product or concept introduction in the floriculture industry of the year. An international platform awaits the nominees and winners. The winner is determined 50% by the professional jury and 50% by the online votes of the professional audience. So vote for the product or concept you find most sustainable or special.

Bio-Based Flower Food Sachet

With the introduction of bio-based flower food, Chrysal is taking the next step in sustainability. From now on the 99% bio-based flower food will be available in all the sustainable packaging. All bio-based ingredients are from biological resources, such as plants. It contributes to Chrysal’s goal to be 100% circular in 2040. Bio Based Flower Food sachet Liquid Sachet on String Liquid Sachet on String is the only liquid flower food that can be attached automatically to bouquets. For this innovation, Chrysal worked closely together with Bercomex who developed the application machine for this concept. This total solution reduces production, storage, and transport costs and helps solve labor issues such as working in close proximity in relation to COVID-19. The sachets are packed efficiently in a special box that will help facilitate a machine speed up to 4.000 sachets per hour. In addition, this special packaging reduces the amount of cardboard required by up to 70% in comparison to our regular boxes. As a result, transportation volumes are reduced by up to 63% lowering transportation costs. Chrysal Cares - on Thursd
