The Flower Council of India has offered a floral salute to India’s Covid-19 warriors by the way of expressing their gratitude for their unstinted support. The Council stated that the warriors, ‘did not care for their comfort, relentlessly worked to save us from the deadly corona virus, risked their life and their family’s life to save Ours, worked 24×7 when we were in the comforts of our home during lockdown, faced the anger, the violence and the hatred, but they refused to bow down and stood their ground in the line of their duty. They are our selfless, dedicated and committed Corona Warriors.’

The Council stated that the floriculture fraternity shares the enormous concerns of the floriculture sector, which is currently badly affected by the Corona virus crisis. “We are constantly monitoring conditions in our markets, where physical shops are being forces to shut down and frontiers are being closed, in order to see how we can make an effective contribution to support the sector with our communications around flowers and plants. We are exploring effective marketing campaigns which enable consumers to experience the effect of flowers and plants. We believe that some campaigns are so successful that that they are transformed from a campaign into part of a culture”, the council stated.
