NEW YORK (PRWEB) July 1, 2008
Floramedia's annual competition was organized in 1967 to recognize market-oriented design achievements that improve a plant's marketability and appeal to end consumers. Awards are given in three categories – Best Product, Best Out of the Box Product, and Best Presentation. The delegates voted unanimously for the Plant Porter in both the Best Out of the Box Package and Best Presentation categories.
John Henry designed the Plant Porter to add eye-catching packaging to traditional potted plants to create a convenient gift for any occasion. Recognizing the challenges of capturing the attention of busy female shoppers, this purse-inspired package offers shelf-appeal, versatility, and grab-and-go styling. The Plant Porter can be sized to fit any pot and customized with graphics for seasonal promotions or store branding.
"We are delighted that the John Henry was recognized by Floramedia for our latest innovation in merchandising solutions," commented Kristi Huffman, Vice President John Henry. "The Plant Porter is an excellent example of our philosophy of market-driven creative design and product development based on emerging industry trends and consumer buying behaviors."
