The International Grower of the Year (IGOTY) Awards 2022 is now open for entries. The award ceremony will be held in January 2022 alongside IPM Essen in Germany.
AIPH welcomes entries from around the world. The IGOTY Awards, supported by Headline Partner, Royal FloraHolland, celebrate best practice and recognise the ‘best of the best’ in ornamentals production in five categories. The categories are finished plants and trees, young plants, cut flowers and bulbs, sustainability and inspiring business. Within each category bronze, silver and gold awards can be won. From among these categories, only one winner will be crowned the ‘AIPH International Grower of the Year 2022’. The winner receives the ‘Gold Rose’.
Leader within the entire palette
In January 2020, Anthura, a worldwide specialist in anthuriums and orchids, was named International Grower of the Year 2020. The Netherlands-based organisation reached a milestone for horticulture when its research and development department sequenced and mapped the DNA of orchids and Anthuriums. The awards judging panel commented: “Anthura is a role model for all of us. They have managed to be the leader within the entire palette; Innovation, R&D, New Tech, Sales & marketing, environment and HR.”
Candidates can enter the IGOTY Awards 2022 online and entry closes on Friday 10th September 2021. All winners will be announced at the IGOTY Awards ceremony in Essen in January.
