2022 Florist Awards

ABOUT

The 2022 Fresh Awards will recognise florists across a range of categories.

The process is as follows:

  • Complete the Fresh Awards application form
  • Applicants are assessed to determine semi-finalists to proceed to the next round
  • Semi-finalists are mystery shopped on one occasion to help determine the finalists
  • Finalists will then participate in a second mystery shop to determine the winner of each award category.

Applicants will be judged on:

  • Store appearance
  • Customer service
  • Product quality, range and freshness
  • Merchandising and branding

A criteria element of the program is that all participating businesses receive a copy of each mystery shopper's report, which includes the shopper's feedback, comments and observations.
