From February 7 to 9, MUSHROOM BUSINESS, the sole mushroom company from Ukraine, showcased its exquisite king oyster (eryngii) mushrooms at Fruit Logistica 2024 in Berlin, Europe’s premier fruit and vegetable exhibition.
We have already published an overview of the mushroom companies represented at the event here: https://www.umdis.org/mushrooms-were-present-at-fruit-logistics-2024-exhibition-article-number-1/

UMDIS sought insights from MUSHROOM BUSINESS’s management about their experience at the event. Igor Kozak, the CEO, emphasized their primary objective: to introduce themselves to potential clients from Western and Central Europe. With a solid foundation in the Ukrainian market, MUSHROOM BUSINESS is actively expanding into the European mushroom market, projecting an annual supply of over 100 tonnes of king oyster mushrooms.

According to Igor Kozak, it’s imperative for Ukrainian producers to demonstrate trustworthiness and adherence to European standards when engaging with foreign partners. “We firmly believe that we embody these qualities and stand ready to provide our European customers with high-quality products and reliable cooperation,” adds Igor.

Throughout the exhibition, MUSHROOM BUSINESS’s stand attracted a steady stream of visitors, indicating significant interest. “We were constantly engaged in discussions with European partners regarding supply opportunities, while also providing guidance to other producers on cultivation techniques,” explains Oleksii Kozak, a sales specialist at MUSHROOM BUSINESS.

From the onset, it was evident that there exists a substantial demand for king oyster (eryngii) mushrooms across Europe, with MUSHROOM BUSINESS making a lasting impression. Visitor feedback reaffirmed the premium status of these mushrooms as an exotic delicacy, with demand steadily increasing. MUSHROOM BUSINESS’s presence at Fruit Logistica 2024 not only showcased their capabilities but also signaled promising opportunities for future growth and collaboration.

“Mushroom business” is located in the Kharkiv region, and despite its proximity to the war zone, it continues to operate. Established in 2010, the company has evolved from a modest oyster mushroom producer to a state-of-the-art, semi-automated factory specializing in king oyster (eryngii) mushrooms.
Presently, the company boasts a monthly production volume of 20 tons, offering an array of four varieties: “Premium,” “Selected,” “Slices,” and “Baby.” Utilizing the innovative “in jars” cultivation method, Mushroom Business ensures not only delectable flavor but also visually appealing mushrooms. Employees humorously remark that the mushrooms resemble perfection straight out of cartoons.
Packaging receives meticulous attention as well. “Premium” mushrooms are elegantly encased in modern, stylish cardboard boxes reminiscent of miniature corrugated containers. Meanwhile, “Selected,” “Slices,” and “Baby” varieties are presented in traditional light green plastic trays adorned with informative stickers bearing the company logo.
Notably, Mushroom Business’s logo, featuring a mushroom adorned with a tie, underscores the company’s commitment to professionalism and quality—a visual testament to their dedication to serious business endeavors.
