Adelaide Mushrooms is South Australia’s largest mushroom grower with its
original farm at Woodcroft and building an new farm at Monarto. The company
is owned by the Schirripa family.
In April 2012 we started up a new mushroom facility for Parwan mushrooms. The investors came originally not out of the mushroom industry and explored the potential supplier who could be their best partner for building this project.
Mushroom Exchange is part of Costa Exchange. Costa Exchange is one of
Australia’s largest growers, packers and distributors of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Formed in 1970 by Philip Burdon and Roger Giles as a private company,
Meadow Mushrooms Ltd is today the largest producer of mushrooms in NZ
and one of the top two in Australasia.
In 1993, Rob Tolson of Elf Farm Supplies developed the first aerated floor using the spigot system. 2 tunnels were built, each of 300 tons, to house the compost for the last few days of the composting process. The current installation has a capacity of 600 tons of fresh compost weekly.
