Suffolk Mushrooms completes a £1million expansion in time for Christmas!
Suffolk Mushrooms, part of the Walsh Mushrooms Group, has further invested in its production and packing facility at the farm in Stanton, near Bury St Edmunds.
The first mushrooms have just been picked from a £1 million expansion in six new growing houses at Suffolk Mushrooms which opened in 2010. The farms production will be increased by 30% to meet the growing demand for British mushrooms.
The site is heated by a biomass boiler which has helped to significantly reduce carbon emissions. This commitment to the environment has been acknowledged by the Suffolk County Council Carbon Charter Project with Suffolk Mushrooms receiving the highly prestigious and much sought after Gold Status Award.
Alan Walsh, chairman, had the following to say:
''2015 will be a significant year for the growth of the Walsh Mushrooms Group. Our mushroom growing farm in Suffolk has once again expanded to satisfy customer requirement for locally sourced product. This, coupled with the investment planned at Evesham, clearly demonstrates our commitment to customers and to our own plans for significant growth in the UK mushroom market''.
