HortConnections 2017 a Knox™ Out!

Record Breaking Attendance

A cooperation between AUSVEG and the PMA A-NZ, HortConnections 2017 has set a new benchmark in Australian horticultural events, with excellent speakers and sessions providing vital industry insights and leading opinions from experts in a range of fields. 

With a record breaking number of delegates from a broad spectrum of the horticultural industry, and all levels of the fresh produce value chain, HortConnections provided a vital opportunity to showcase how Knox™ lettuce varieties can be of benefit to all levels of the chain; from the grower at the start through to the markets, processors, retailers, and eventually the final consumer. 

AUSVEG Awards: Innovation Partner 2017

The climax of the convention was the gala dinner and awards ceremony, and Rijk Zwaan Australia was honoured to receive the Boomaroo Nurseries' AUSVEG Innovation Partner Award for 2017. 

Thanks go to AUSVEG, the judges and Boomaroo Nurseries for the award, but also to our colleagues: Knox is the culmination of over a decade of endeavour from a large team of people within Rijk Zwaan, so pride at the award can be shared by many. 

HortConnections 2017 will be a hard act to follow, but Rijk Zwaan looks forward to the HortConnections 2018 with confidence that it will also be a huge success: we'll see you all in Brisbane!
