“As a business the Fresh Awards have been very rewarding to us.

It is a great initiative from Sydney Markets to initiate the Fresh Awards and I think provides a sense of achievement to participate in and make the finals for all involved.

The benefits are numerous winning Flower Grower of the Year. It was very surprising to see how fast social media works. Within minutes of winning we were receiving text and Instagram messages congratulating us. We have new customers putting in orders and more people visiting our stands in the Flower Market.

The recognition from industry peers has been one of the best parts. After growing flowers for over 35 years it is very humbling to get their praise.

We are sure after winning the Sydney Markets Flower Grower of the Year award our company has gained a lot of promotion from within the industry and the community.

We look forward to participating again next year.”
