GIMA addresses suppliers' issues

The first Garden Industry Manufacturers' Association (GIMA) business meeting for the year will tackle group buying and green issues.

GIMA director Neil Gow said many suppliers who attended the inaugural presentation of the GCA's new buying group, Garden Retailers Organisation (GRO), last month were unhappy at the lack of information provided.

The management team of the GRO, set up by the GCA in association with Associated Independent Stores, will hold a question-and-answer session to clarify unanswered questions.

The second part of the meeting will explore the green trend in business and how companies can gain an edge.

The meeting will be held on 30 January, near Warwick.
