Collaborative working promoted in Wales

South-west Wales growers are being urged to attend a free event being staged at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on 16 September.

It aims to demonstrate how collaborative working can help their businesses in areas such as joint purchasing, delivery, marketing and customer service.

Horticulture Wales, a project focused on improving supply chain links in the edible and amenity horticulture industry, has joined forces with collaborative business consultant Simon Michaels of f3 to stage a session to gauge the interest of ornamental growers and nurseries across Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire in setting up a regional cooperative.

There are about 60 growers in the area. The scheme is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
