Orion Flora, which has a state-of-the-art pack house in Pune, works with small, marginal and medium-size growers in India and has been exporting fresh flowers to the UK and other destinations in the EU since 2012. Indifresh is an importer of Indian floriculture products into the UK and has been a preferred supplier of roses to supermarkets across the EU for several years. The La Fleur difference Commenting on the USP of the brand, Hariharan said, “Our products are pre-designed, pre-produced bouquets that are ready for the consumer to buy. Our main USP is freshness from farm to store. Another main point of differentiation is the design. All our bouquets are designed by UK-based floral designer Jo Moody, who has over 15 years of experience in the horticultural industry, including teaching floristry at Hadlow College in Kent, and developing bouquets for major high street retailers in the UK.”All of La Fleur's bouquets are designed by UK-based floral designer Jo Moody" align="center" contenteditable="false" readability="1" All of La Fleur's bouquets are designed by UK-based floral designer Jo Moody The La Fleur range uses only locally grown flowers of the highest quality. “We are the first in India to introduce fresh-cut flowers into supermarkets at this scale,” he added. Priced by category, the La Fleur value range is available at Rs 250 per bouquet, followed by monoline bouquets at Rs 360, mixed bouquets at Rs 585, and premium bouquets at Rs 920.

Slaughterhouse Workers Can Now Get Free Job Training to Become Florists - VegNewsWednesday, March 31, 2021
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), sent a letter to Kim Cordova, president of labor union United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7, urging her to encourage workers to become florists in light of the ongoing pandemic and offering for PETA to pay for the necessary job training to make the transition. “Working on the kill floor is a dangerous, dirty, dead-end job,” Newkirk said. “PETA is happy to help budding flower arrangers flee the meat industry for the sake of animals and their own mental health.” Last week, a number of meat companies closed slaughterhouses as an increasing number of workers became infected with COVID-19—a disease thought to have originated from a wet animal market, not dissimilar from a slaughterhouse, in Wuhan, China late last year. Smithfield shuttered its Sioux Falls, SD pig slaughterhouse after 230 workers tested positive, Cargill closed its meat-packaging plant near Hazleton, PA, after reporting 130 positive cases, and JBS temporarily shut down its beef slaughterhouse in Souderton, PA after 17 workers tested positive.Love the plant-based lifestyle as much as we do?Get the BEST vegan recipes, travel, celebrity interviews, product picks, and so much more inside every issue of VegNews Magazine.
