UK Grower Awards winners demonstrate exceptional talent

Welcome to this special presentation of the achievements of the outstanding winners of the UK Grower Awards 2017.

The awards are about celebrating and highlighting innovation, dedication and achievement across the whole of the UK production horticulture industry.

At a time of great change it is particularly crucial we highlight the strengths and benefits of this vital industry — to customers, of course, but also to Government, trade partners and other stakeholders, old and new.

As the winner profile articles will make clear, there is no shortage of innovation among the best of today’s UK production horticulture industry.

That innovation is being driven by exceptional talent that should give us all great hope for the industry’s future. Thank you to AG Recruitment, Cocogreen, De Lacy Executive, the HTA, ICL, NFU, SinclairPro and Rijk Zwaan for so generously sponsoring this year’s awards, ensuring that we can all continue to celebrate and encourage excellence in our industry.
