The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH)

The world´s champion for the power of plants.

Since 1948, AIPH has united horticultural producers in an international community that still thrives. Much has changed in that time. Technologies advanced, cities have risen from the ground, and we have become more connected than ever. As a result, our essential bond with nature has been weakened. AIPH strives to reignite and uphold an appreciation of plants that we believe are a basic human instinct. We support the work of grower associations globally. Together, we champion a prosperous industry, growing plants that enhance lives, advance societies, and sustain our planet for this generation and the next.

Union Fleurs – International Flower Trade Association

Union Fleurs was founded in 1959 as an international umbrella organisation for national associations and companies active in the floricultural trade. Its primary purpose is to represent and promote the worldwide interests of traders and wholesalers in cut flowers, foliage and cut greens and pot plants.
