Plants For Europe works closely with similar businesses around the world so that we can offer a worldwide service to our breeder clients and ensure that the plants that our clients develop get the best chance at commercial success in all the major markets.

In Australia and New Zealand, we work closely with Tasmania-based Plants Management Australia. Anyone who has worked with Chris Sargent and his team will know that they run a first-class operation that effectively promotes new plants and carefully looks after the interest of plant breeders. To see that recognised in the 2011 Telstra Business Awards is fantastic and a just accolade for PMA.

You can see more information on the awards and watch Chris give not one, not two, but THREE acceptance speeches here.

This is not only great recognition of PMA, but a boost for horticulture in general (so often seen as a small, backward business that lacks innovation) and for plant variety rights management as a profession. Thank you PMA, it is a pleasure to work with you.
