A BRITISH gardening company has picked up two major awards at Spain’s Iberflora Show.
VegTrug scooped The Star Product for Gardening and an Award for Innovation prize at the 41st International Fair of Plants and Flowers, in Valencia.
The Essex based company design grow boxes with a raised bed, created to help elderly or disabled people who would usually struggle to tend to plants low to the ground.
“We are delighted to be recognised with the two awards at Iberflora, particularly as it recognised the innovation of the VegTrug product and our marketing approach,” VegTrug International Director Joe Henham told the Olive Press.
“We will be working with our distribution partner to bring the VegTrug to market in Spain this year and we are very excited.
“We would like to thank the Iberflora committee for the awards and very much look forward to a successful sales year in Spain helping more and more people grow their own produce at home,” he added.
