Why Do Suppliers and Manufacturers Join SAF?
“As a supplier, we value our SAF membership because it provides us awesome networking opportunities with industry leading florists. Those networking opportunities translate to fostering relationships with existing customers, finding new customers and also obtaining feedback on our new product releases.
SAF does a fabulous job providing florists with PR to promote flowers to consumers. Florists are our connection to consumers, and without consumers, none of us would be in business! Florists capitalizing on the wealth of information providing by SAF will only make a stronger floral industry for all.”
