Chrysal, worldwide market leader in flower food, has been a driving force in floriculture for decades. Thanks to this experience, they offer a lot of expertise and first-class guidance. Distinctive is that they strongly focus on the highest quality and always look for the most sustainable solutions.
That, of course, resonates with us. Farm Direct is your partner for sustainably grown roses of the highest calibre, and this of course includes sustainable flower food of absolute top quality.
The importance of good flower food
One of the most crucial elements, from harvest to vase, is good flower food. From the moment they are cut, cut flowers lose their natural source of nutrition. Without these much-needed nutrients, flowers quickly lose their vitality.
Fortunately, there is flower food. By mixing the water in the vase or bucket with nutrients, we mimic the natural source of nutrition. The result? Vital flowers, strong and powerful, that can follow their natural life cycle.
This means that even after harvesting, a cut rose in water will have the strength, as if it were still on the rose bush, to beautifully open and bloom for 1 to 2 weeks.
High quality with Chrysal
Chrysal products guarantee excellence, reduce waste and improve bud opening. This way, flowers stay beautiful for longer.
We have of course personally tested this, and the vase life of our premium roses is clearly even longer with Chrysal. A longer vase life means more satisfied customers and a more sustainable rose, and the latter is especially important nowadays.
The importance of sustainable flower food
We consider Corporate Social Responsibility to be our duty. Therefore, every day we look at how we can make our sustainable contribution even greater. From grower, to wholesaler, to florist, because every step counts, including the flower food.
The sustainability of flower food depends on 1) sustainable manufacturing and 2) proper functioning. A sustainably manufactured product contributes to a greener world. Properly functioning food means a longer vase life for the flowers and less waste, which in turn contributes to a greener world.
