Gardenex

The Federation of Garden and Leisure Manufacturers Ltd has seen an increase in new memberships as more UK businesses call on the wide-ranging services provided by its associations – Gardenex, PetQuip and the Commercial Horticultural Association.

Companies facing uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the UK’s transition from the EU are turning to the federation for help and support.

The teams at Gardenex, PetQuip and the CHA deliver a high standard of service to all member companies, through a comprehensive range of UK and international business benefits, information and advice and an extensive programme of export events and initiatives.

Benefits exclusive to member firms include access to an exclusive database of international buyers, taking part in ‘Meet the International Buyer’ events (currently being organised ‘virtually’), global market research, technical advice, comprehensive business bulletins and access to the Federation’s online specialist exports helpline.

Amanda Sizer Barrett, director general of the federation, says: “The last couple of years have seen huge challenges for UK businesses with the uncertainties of Brexit and the current coronavirus pandemic but Gardenex, PetQuip and the CHA are here to help.

“As members of our associations, companies can benefit from our help and support on all aspects of current and future exporting and we look forward to continuing to work with businesses to help them increase international sales.

“We are looking forward to supporting UK suppliers in the next months to navigate the outcome of the UK’s transition from the EU and to seize the undoubted international business opportunities that lie ahead.”
