Floristry students at East Durham College were treated to a talk and free gifts from plant food industry giants Chrysal.

Chrysal field officer Paul Cooke visited the Houghall Campus, in Durham, yesterday to talk to the group of 25 students about Chrysal, job within the plant food industry and also about the products they supply around the world.

Paul then handed out goody bags to the attending students containing some of the company’s top products including conditioner, flower food, leafshine and a conditioning T-bag.

Paul said: “It’s great to be able to come in and teach students about Chrysal and the work we do.

“I hope the students enjoy the goody bags and I’m sure they will all put the products to good use throughout their course.”

Floristry lecturer Sue Lee thanked Paul for coming in to speak to the students and giving them an insight into one of the biggest companies in the floristry industry.

Sue said: “It really was great for Paul to be able to come in and speak to students and give them an idea of some of the products available from Chrysal and how they work.

“It was also great for the students to get an understanding of how Chrysal works as a global company within the industry and how they keep producing top quality products to stay ahead of their competition.”

Chrysal originated in the Netherlands in 1929 and in the early fifties they added flower food to its product range. Since then the company has gone on to become trendsetters in the plant food industry through their many years of global experience.
