Bagala Bros Australia crowned flower grower of the year

Based family business Bagala Bros Australia has been crowned Flower Grower of the Year at the recent Sydney Markets' Fresh Awards.

The flower growers, wholesalers, and importers grow their roses at Horsley Park and have been established for more than 40 years. They were previously finalists in the category in 2017 and 2018.

Michael Bagala and his cousin Michael run the business after taking over from his late-dad Frank and his brother Antonio, who is still part of the business. Their five-hectare climate-controlled farm has 40,000 plants which they produce all year round for customers, including the weddings and funeral industries. They currently have a big demand for the cottage variety of roses and the wedding colors of whites, pinks, and creams.

"We went down to the awards this year thinking it was not our turn because we were up against other great growers. When they read our name out, it was very exciting," said Mr. Bagala, whose day starts at 10.30 pm on the three market days. "We are very honored to have won Flower Grower of the Year for 2022. We couldn't have achieved this without our loyal customers; thank you for all your support and for voting for us. A big thank you to our well-deserved staff for all their hard work and our families for their support.
