On 14 June, the 12th edition of the AIPH International Grower of the Year Awards ceremony will take place - this year during GreenTech Amsterdam, the horticulture technology event at RAI in Amsterdam. The awards recognize the best floriculture companies across the world in different categories and with one overall winner.
The nominees in the five categories (Finished Plants and Trees, Young Plants, Cut Flowers and Bulbs, Sustainability, and Inspiring Business Award) will get to hear who is taking home the coveted awards during a festive evening on 14 June.
