Get Well Free Delivery

It's always a big call - offering FREE delivery and giving back to your loyal customers who support your vision and make your whole business delivering fresh fruit gifts and edible blooms a possibility.

Hospital Get Well Gifts

So we we naturally a little reluctant to go forward and take the big step and offer free shipping and free delivery on fruit baskets and hampers delivered to John Hunter Hospital.

Here's the blog post all about it

Stats from a recent online e-commerce shopping survey published in a gift baskets industry study show that 58% of customers have added extra newborn baby, celebration, gourmet or sympathy items to their shopping basket in order to qualify for free delivery. 

That's pretty impressive - but even more so when you consider the actual real cost of delivery across Sydney to Sydney shipping is around $5 per item (not including the cardboard box or packaging).  And this is when most florists and edible blooms online sellers are targeting around $15 - $19 for a fixed price delivery charge.

I appreciate we are not talking Sydney to Sydney delivery here, but we are talking same day delivery to the John Hunter Hospital and Newcastle Private Hospital.  It just makes sense.  Order online or call us direct on 1300 284 684.

Edible Fruit Arrangement to Hospital
It is little known that men usually encounter a greater rate of illness than women - but it is not all bad news, says Kacy Fletcher of The Fruit Basket Company in Sydney, New South Wales.

Through a balanced diet of vegetables and fruits, and with frequent exercise health risk elements can be reduced. And sharing a fruit hamper filled with seasonal fruit is an effective way to encourage the man in your life to enjoy even more fresh fruits.

"It's difficult to argue against fast food and the benefit of unhealthy food," said Fletcher, who provides fresh fruit delivery to workplaces, hospitals and suburbs in the Sydney. "But they can be "encouraged" towards healthy dining and walking away from the drive thru. Fresh, mouth watering fruit accessible most times fo the day is an essential step.".

"Eating a lot more fruit has such a significant effect on decreasing the risk of lifestyle conditions. Sending out a Fruit Hamper is a reliable way to help men experiment in a fun, lighthearted way with a healthy diet.".

"There is a silent health crisis in Australia," said Dr. David Gremillion in a recent article on the Men's Health Network. Gremillion warned about the parlous state of men's health. "It's a sad fact that, on average, Australian men live sicker and die younger than Australian women.".
