Floral professionals: do you have an opinion about Millennials? Fairly or otherwise, many people have formed an image of our young friends born in the 80s and 90s, a stereotype that doesn’t always include the words “hard working” or “responsible.” This includes many of us in the floral business. If you are one of those people, looking out toward the horizon and questioning the future of Floriculture, fear not! FLORALIFE® brings good news!
At Floralife, we like to describe our contribution to the global floriculture industry with the phrase “Follow the Flowers.” The path from the farm to the home is long and full of hazards for the delicate flower, and Floralife products attempt to address each of them. It’s a big job! How big? To appreciate the global scope of Following the Flowers, it helps to also “Follow the Income.”
Across the flower chain there are growers, transporters and retailers who would like grow their knowledge, make new contacts and explore new opportunities. The same goes for floral executives, researchers and suppliers, as well. If only there was a program to help foster floral industry connections. Well, there is. It’s called Floralife Connections.
