News & Information

Growcom is the hub of information for the horticulture industry. Growcom members and industry stakeholders place a high value on the organisation’s news and information services.

In two membership satisfaction surveys conducted in 2015 and 2019, ‘News and Information’ was the number one driver for joining Growcom in the first instance.

To reach decision-makers and the community, Growcom’s communications team produces a number of print and electronic publications, and engages on social media. The team also has expertise in public relations, event management, website development and graphic design.

FRUIT & VEGETABLE NEWS MAGAZINE

Growcom’s flagship print publication, Fruit & Vegetable News has been read by the organisation’s members and those with a vested interest in the horticulture industry since the 1950s.

The magazine continues to be at the forefront of news delivery. It contains information found in no other publication including the latest industry news, technical data, current research, and upcoming events. It is an easy way to keep up-to-date with developments in the industry.

Since its inception, the Fruit & Vegetable News magazine has undergone several transformations to ensure a high-quality product for subscribers, sponsors and advertisers. From January 2020 the magazine once again underwent a transformation moving to a 40-page, bi-monthly periodical.
