Nature Green has recently established in Ukraine, in order to grow organic Shiitake mushrooms. “From the beginning, we have been focused on the production of premium quality organic mushrooms,” said Peter Sutherland, Sales Manager.
“We make our own first-class substrate in house to keep a consistent high-quality harvest, to do this we use the best organic raw materials, advanced techniques and cutting-edge equipment in our facility.” The production is certified with Organic Standards & Global Gap, ISO 22000:2005 and 9001:2015.
Record number of US organic producers
The number of domestic certified organic operations in the United States rose almost 12% between 2014 and 2015.
This represents the highest growth rate since 2008 and an increase of nearly 300% since the count began in 2002, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and based on data released by its Agricultural Marketing Service's (AMS) National Organic Program (NOP).
The total retail market for organic products in the US is now valued at more than $39 billion and over $75 billion worldwide, the USDA said.
