In Italy, the PO mainly sells to wholesalers (70% of mushrooms), the rest is sent to the canning industry, retailers and abroad.
"Button mushrooms were affected by summer and autumn vegetables, and demand was low. The price of mushrooms does not reflect the work we do to check, cultivate, harvest, store and transport them in compliance with certifications. At present, we are being inspected for the GlobalGAP certification. If I think about everything that we do, which has become normal throughout the years, I realise how much we pay attention to the quality of our mushrooms," concludes Loredana Alberti.
