WHAT THE FOUNDATION WILL DO FOR YOU

  • It will help provide grants for specific studies and to education institutions for specific purposes of importance to the floriculture industry in all fields production, wholesale and retail.

  • By combining the contributions of many in the industry, a fund has been established to carry out studies which no one trade member could finance alone.  The results of such research will be available to all in the industry.

  • By initiating its own research program, the industry will have convincingly demonstrated to government that it is prepared to do its part.  The industry would be then in a much stronger position when seeking further services, research support, or facilities from government sources to carry through its aims and objectives.

  • By controlling directly the areas and direction in which studies can be quickly undertaken, the results will come directly to the industry quickly and with the greatest of practical impact.

  • By including every aspect of the commercial floriculture industry, the retailer, the grower and the wholesaler will be able to gain more knowledge of production and marketing, better means of handling flowers, and better training of staff.
