Chairman of the international jury and AIPH Past-President, Vic Krahn, commented on the entries, "The jury was very impressed with the exceptionally high standard of the entries received this year. It was a huge task with so many more entries than previous years. The high standards of the entrants meant the jury had to work exceptionally hard. However, in every judge’s case, they found it extremely thrilling to assess such high quality businesses. They know with certainty that when the winners are announced in January, this industry will be truly inspired by these world acclaimed businesses."
AIPH Secretary General, Tim Briercliffe added, "We have been so pleased with the response from growers around the world to the call for entries in this expanded global contest. There will be more winners this year than ever before and I hope the industry will join us to celebrate when the winners are announced in January."
The awards are on 28 January 2016, during IPM Essen, Germany.
