GlobalGAP, a certification scheme for agricultural and horticultural practices, has joined as Sapphire Sponsor for the International Grower of the Year (IGOTY) Awards 2024.
GlobalGAP is sponsoring the Sustainability category of the awards. This category recognises best practice and innovation in improving sustainability in areas such as water use, chemical use, climate change, and more. As a scheme with a focus on safe and sustainable farming practices, this category is a perfect fit for GlobalGAP.
Sarah von Fintel, Key Account Manager Floriculture at FoodPLUS, GLOBALG.A.P, said: "Supporting the AIPH International Grower of the Year Awards is not just about recognising excellence in horticulture; it is about nourishing the seeds of inspiration and cultivating a vibrant future for our global community. GLOBALG.A.P and the GGN label are proud to have sponsored the past two years and already look forward to the 2024 award show.”
Candidates can enter the IGOTY Awards 2024 online and entry closes on Friday 30th June 2023. Judging will then take place by a panel of industry experts who will access the entrants on five key criteria; economic performance, innovation, market insight, sustainability and human resources policy.
All winners will be announced at an Awards ceremony in January 2024 alongside IPM Essen. To find out more about the IGOTY Awards and to enter, visit the AIPH Website. For queries on entering the awards please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
