An interesting email arrived at the new website this month. Watch out the Moldovans are coming: Our firm is “Moldbazi-ind”LTD. The company activated in May 2000. Main activity: cultivation and conservation of mushrooms, cultivation of mycelia. Productive space - around 2000m2, with the possibility of extension up to 4000m2. Output - at present 12-15 tons per year, with an increase potential to up to 100 tons per year. The mushrooms cultivated - at present Pleurotus ostreatus. It is possible to start cultivation of other species. The firm actively cooperates with the scientific laboratory in the field of cultivation of mushrooms created by the Agrarian University of Moldova. Our mushroom production corresponds to the standards in force in the Republic of Moldova. Technical and technological conditions allow in the near future certification of production in accordance with the international standard “ISO-9000”. We are looking for partners in order to extend production, processing and sale of mushroom products, first of all on the East European markets. The advantage of growing mushrooms in Moldova is that of very cheap manual labour (30-50 times less than in Western Europe) and geographic proximity to Eastern European markets, which are still not saturated, as well as Moldova’s membership in the Commonwealth of Independent States, with certain customs privileges.
