Grants to assist export trading

The Commercial Horticultural Association (CHA) has won UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) funding. This will help up to 50 companies with grants of up to £1,800 to exhibit at trade events abroad.

UKTI has increased the number of grants available for individual companies from three to six and any previous TAP grants will be wiped from the records.

Total grant support to the CHA and members is £81,030. CHA secretary Chris Wood said: "This makes getting into export that much easier, especially for small and new companies in these difficult times."

Grants will be available for: Flormart/Miflor in Padua, Italy (10-12 September); International Horti Fair in Amsterdam, Holland (13-16 October); Growtech Eurasia in Antalya, Turkey (3-6 December); IPM Essen in Germany (28-31 January 2010); Salon du Vegetal in Angers, France (16-18 Feb 2010); IPM Dubai, UAE (2010 dates TBC); and Hortec in Nairobi, Kenya (2010 dates TBC).
