After being recognized as the Canadian Grower of the Year, Bylands was eligible for a berth in International Association of Horticulture Producers (AIHP) Grower of the Year Competition that was held in Xi’An, China in September 2011. The top entries were invinted to Xi’An to take part in the Award ceremony where gold, silver and bronze medals would be presented to the top three companies. This truly was an International Award, as entrants from China, Chinese Taipei, Holland, Belgium and England all were vying for the Gold Rose.

Similar to the CNLA Grower of the Year Award, the International Grower Award was based on four main criteria:

  1. Economic Performance
  2. Sustainable Business Strategy (including Social Responsibility)
  3. Innovation
  4. Overall Company Image

It was the first time that a Canadian Nursery had entered the competition so to come away with the Gold Rose was a tremendous honour for Bylands Nurseries Ltd. All growers invited to the competition were deserving recipients and should be commended on their strong business practices.
