Why Ireland is the “warmest” country in terms of mushrooms? Leonne from JF McKenna showed us Ireland (1 of 5)

When I looked on the website of JF McKenna I liked one phrase from their client`s review: “The whole team at JF McKenna will go the extra mile”, which means “make effort”. Being the editor of UMDIS Mushroom Information Agency, I agreed on our promo company visit to JF McKenna in the beginning of July. In the moment of buying the tickets – I realised that JF McKenna, general contractor and supplier for mushroom industry, was located in Northern Ireland, not in Ireland as I thought - so I needed visa to UK as it is not EU anymore. After thinking about the situation for some hours I wrote to JF McKenna: - Maybe you will come to Ireland and show me your clients there? I was amazed receiving the answer: - Yes, for sure. I thought that time – wow, this company really “will go the extra mile”!
