After 3 years of extensive investigations, South Africa’s largest flower and gifting service in partnership with Fruitspot introduced a delivery service which enables consumers to order fruits and vegetables from NetFlorist and get them delivered to select areas in Johannesburg North and Pretoria the next day.
With the world practising accelerated hygiene, safety and social distancing, delivering products straight to a person’s doorstep in the safest way to receive food. Netflorist is made up of a warehouse and vehicles that are already cooled to preserve the cold chain of our flowers and gifts which means that they can also accommodate fruits and vegetables.
According to Ryan Bacher, Managing Director of NetFlorist, “Our business is built around same-day delivery and we grow by over 1000% over Valentine’s Day. We’re using that ability to scale up to make these necessities available to our customers over this important time,”. The delivery service was launched following Cyril Ramaposa’s Presidential Address regarding COVID-19, which reminded South Africa that every person living in the country has a role to play in ensuring we flatten the curve.
NetFlorist has also increased health practices conducive to maintaining the necessary conditions and health measures that will ensure cleanliness when dealing with the delivery of food products. “Our teams are sanitizing regularly and we’ve already initiated non-contact deliveries. We’ve been delighting our customers with flowers and gifts for 20 years, now it’s time to feed them as well,” said Bacher.
