Van Belle team celebrates win at IGOTY Awards Van Belle Nursery
Abbotsford, BC – Van Belle Nursery took home not one, but two awards at the International Grower of the Year (IGOTY) Awards this year.

They were awarded Gold in the Young Plants category and Silver in Finished Plants - the first to win multiple categories in a single year.

Hosted by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) in Essen, Germany, the annual ceremony has recognized exceptional achievements in the horticultural industry since 2009. It takes place during IPM Essen, one of the world’s leading trade fairs for horticulture.

“We are truly honoured to win these awards despite fierce competition from very deserving nominees,” says President, Dave Van Belle. “It’s a humbling experience, and I have to say that we couldn’t have done it without the dedication of our incredible team.”

The British Columbia-based wholesale grower and propagator of ornamental plants was among eight other finalists from the Netherlands, Columbia, Israel and China.
