Since the launch of the project in 2017, Tyfu Cymru has delivered industry specific support and training to build the capacity and capability of the Welsh horticulture sector. The project works with supply chain partners to prepare growers and producer owned horticulture companies to adapt to environmental and economic challenges, and position them to capitalise on market opportunities for business development and growth. To date, Tyfu Cymru has developed a database of over 430 Welsh horticulture businesses, delivered over 1000 training days, and engaged with over 1000 horticulture professionals across Wales and beyond.
Tyfu Cymru is delivered through Lantra Wales, who support both individuals and companies in the land-based and environmental sector to achieve personal and business growth.
