AU: Old factory to become largest exotic mushroom farm

Australia’s largest exotic mushroom farm and processing facility is being established on the former Holden car manufacturing site in Adelaide, creating up to 350 jobs, according to the SA government.

The $110 million facility will produce more than 20,000 tonnes of exotic mushrooms and associated products each year.

The Epicurean Food Group facility will manage all operations in one location, from growing fungi in a lab to turning second-grade and surplus mushrooms into burgers in a commercial kitchen.

Trade and Investment Minister Nick Champion said repurposing one of the state’s most revered manufacturing sites was proof the sector remained strong and adaptable.
