Breaking news from the AHDB conference in the UK at the end of April indicates that a new body to promote the interests and progress of British mushroom growers has been agreed.
The new group will be open to both mushroom growers and allied trades.
Jack Ward, CEO of British Growers said: “The industry needs to raise the profile of the mushroom sector and build its credibility as a high-tech forward-looking industry making a positive and valued contribution to the UK food chain and the UK economy.”
The main aims of the group will be to guide the use of grower levies spent on R&D through the creation of an R&D strategy for the mushroom sector.
