As announ­ced ear­lier this year, Gro­wing Media Euro­pe AISBL has now offi­cial­ly been estab­lis­hed as an inter­na­tio­nal non-pro­fit non-govern­men­tal orga­niz­a­ti­on. Suc­cee­ding the for­mer Euro­pean Peat and Gro­wing Media Asso­cia­ti­on EPAGMA, Gro­wing Media Euro­pe repres­ents lea­ding com­pa­nies and asso­cia­ti­ons acti­ve in the field of plant substrates and soil impro­vers all over Europe.

It is with pri­de, enthu­si­asm and strong con­fi­dence that we announ­ce the foun­da­ti­on of our own Euro­pean strong­hold repre­sen­ting the gro­wing media indus­try. We are stron­gly deter­mi­ned to turn this into a gre­at suc­cess!” said Nor­bert Siebels, the Chair­man of Gro­wing Media Euro­pe, at the very first mee­ting of the new association.
