UK Grower Awards 2017

The Grand Connaught Rooms, London.

The UK Grower Awards provide an exceptional opportunity for growers and their key partners in the supply chain to showcase their achievements, innovation and success to both existing and potential customers - and reward their teams for their work throughout the year.

They also provide a vital opportunity for businesses to highlight to stakeholders the vital contribution of UK horticulture - a role which is even more vital in the coming months as representatives lobby for the very best possible arrangements, post-Brexit, for the industry
