Sprayer triggers consumer satisfaction

Upscale body care and ambiance product manufacturer Fruits & Passion of Montreal has earned high marks from customers for its decision to include the Owens-Illinois (Toledo, OH) Easy Pump trigger sprayer on its new line of cleaning products.

โ€œWe shopped around and did a lot of research on different sizes and shapes of sprayers for our Art Home product line,โ€ says Stephane Crevier, product development manager at Fruits & Passion. โ€œThis sprayer helped us accomplish our goal of staying ahead of the trends. Itโ€™s refined and different from anything else on the shelf today.โ€

Part of the unique look is achieved by the compact design and low height of the trigger, says Crevier. From top to bottom, the sprayer is just 1.49,โ€ while more conventional sprayers measure 2โ€ to 3โ€. The low height saves shelf space and makes it easier to ship the sprayer, both before itโ€™s been applied to a bottle and after.

Fruits & Passion uses the Easy Pump trigger sprayer, which has a spray/stream and on/off indexing nozzle, on two different bottles in its Art Home line: 300-mL glass and 500-mL PET. Both screen-printed bottles have a 28-mm neck finish. A paper, pressure-sensitive ingredients and information label is hand applied to the back of each bottle. Also applied by hand is a slender label on the front that identifies the scent.

The Art Home line is sold through 64 Fruits & Passion boutiques in Canada, as well as in specialty stores across the U.S. Suggested retail prices range from U.S. $8 to $18. โ€”PR
