Awards offer great opportunity

Celebrating the best of British horticulture is the theme of the UK Grower Awards 2014 - launched in this edition of Horticulture Week - and all across the production horticulture community are warmly invited to take part.

The awards, organised by HW in association with the NFU, provide an unrivalled opportunity for businesses across every corner of the production sector to ensure their achievements are recognised, not just within the sector but beyond to existing and potential customers - and even new markets.

Celebrating the best of British horticulture is the perfect theme for the event at a time when we know that more leading buyers of fresh produce and plants want to grow their UK supply bases - and we look forward to helping entrants make the most of the major marketing opportunities the awards provide.

Significant changes to the entry process this year mean even the smallest businesses will find it straightforward to take part. A simple two-step entry system means only those shortlisted will need to supply background information in support of their entry, while criteria are now more focused on longer-term achievement.

Meanwhile, this year, as a thank you for the incredible support the awards have received from the industry in the eight years they have been run by HW, we are pleased to offer free entry to everyone.

There are even some new categories, including awards for the best environmental initiative and the best exporter.

For full details and to find 2014's entry form see www.groweroftheyear.co.uk. Good luck with your entries.
