Nominations open for National Awards to recognize excellence within Australian horticulture

Nominations are open for the Australian horticulture industry’s most prestigious recognition, the National Awards for Excellence, which recognize outstanding contributions that individuals and companies make to the nation’s fruit, vegetable, nursery and cut floral sectors.

The annual awards, which will be presented on Wednesday 8 June 2022 during the Hort Connections 2022 Gala Dinner, cover a range of areas in horticulture, including recognizing remarkable growers in multiple categories, as well as researchers, sustainability practices, innovative agribusinesses and the industry’s leading exporters. The Hort Connections Gala Dinner is sponsored by Costa Group.

“The National Awards for Excellence provide an opportunity for the industry to come together to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of our leading growers and industry members, and celebrate the exceptional work that our industry undertakes to keep Australia healthy and safe,” said AUSVEG National Marketing Manager Nathan McIntyre.

“With many growers finding it increasingly difficult to find time away from their farms and their businesses, the Hort Connections Gala Dinner is the industry’s chance to come together and acknowledge the successes of its leading members and provide much-needed support to peers and colleagues who have faced significant challenges over the last two years.”
