The Commercial Horticultural Association (CHA) is the British trade association for manufacturers and suppliers of plants, products and services to commercial horticultural growers throughout the world.

Covering the ornamentals and fresh produce sectors, our members offer the full portfolio of products and services for all horticultural requirements. Building on its enviable reputation for research, innovation and high quality standards, the UK horticultural supplies sector has introduced some of the world’s leading technology, processes and services which are being utilised worldwide.

The CHA promotes its members’ products and services, plus UK horticulture as a whole, throughout the world at shows and via embassies and consulates by working closely with the British Government Department for International Trade (DIT).

CHA is an accredited trade partner for DIT helping UK companies explore international markets and overseas partners to develop trade relationships with UK stakeholders.

Currently the CHA organises British Pavilions at IPM Essen, Fruit Logistica, Greentech and Fruit Attraction .

If you would like more information regarding exhibitions or commercial horticulture in general please get in touch. The CHA also produces publications such as the CHA Buyers’ Guide and the UK Capability in Commercial Horticulture brochure and copies can be forwarded on request.
