Auctions around the world have roughly the same opportunities and challenges. The development of digital platforms with online purchasing possibilities and the increasing sustainability criteria form the challenges. Internationalisation of the trade is an opportunity. That is why the AIPH has established an international auction group.

* AIPH (Association Internationale des Producteurs de l'Horticulture) is a worldwide association of horticultural producers and organisations that promotes the international interests of the horticultural sector. In total, 25 countries have joined it.

Royal FloraHolland is one of the six participants in the auction group established this month by the international association for horticulture, AIPH*. The aim of this group is to exchange knowledge and mutual collaboration with auctions in China, Taiwan, Brazil, Australia and Japan. That offers opportunities for our members and their customers. Various studies have shown that such collaboration is sorely needed. Rabobank's sector outlook revealed, for example, that the western market is almost full. In other parts of the world, the market will grow 80% over the next 10 years.
