Picking in the middle of the forest
Mushrooms are delicate and require great attention from the picking stage. The selection of species in the forest or in production areas is part of our expertise.
Food safety is one of our main concerns; we approach the control stages with absolute thoroughness. This has earned us the IFS (International Food Standard) certification obtained in 2017.
To preserve the naturalness and taste qualities of the mushrooms, we work with a minimum of washing, to avoid adding water and frost during packaging.
