Exotic mushrooms Pied Bleu Ridder mushroom, Pom pom Pruik mushroom, White coral mushrooms and the pink oyster mushroom
Mushrooms are increasingly seen as as a possible meat alternative in the market. This has to do with the increase in the amount of people who choose a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. Restaurants are playing into this: as well as the beef wellington, there are mushroom wellingtons on the menu, and mushroom burgers are also increasingly common on the vegetarian menu. At the moment the Maitake is a very popular mushroom. Maitake is often added to soups, sauces or tea. The pink oyster mushroom, cauliflower mushroom and Pied Bleu are popular at Vroegop-Windig again this year. The mushroom peak is expected around Christmas and there will then be more clarity on the market developments.
