The Flower Association (FA) represents growers, wholesalers, florists, exporters, consultants, researchers and educators from every state and territory around Australia.
Originally called the Queensland Flower Growers Association, the association was founded in 1987 to represent the growing industry but in 2003 commenced its role as the peak industry organisation for the entire cut flower and foliage industry. Today, FA is recognised as the industry’s peak body proactively addressing common challenges and representing its members to government, technical agencies and other industry groups.
