Farmwalks Mushroom Week!

  • Mar 04, 2016

    On Tuesday, May 31st, four parallel company visits will be organised for delegates of the 19th ISMS Congress in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, as part of the Mushroom Week programme.

    The four parallel bustours will depart from ’t Muziekgebouw aan het IJ in Amsterdam, the venue of the ISMS congress around 15.00 hrs, and will be back in Amsterdam around 23.00 hrs.

    “Three companies will be visited by each bustour, that will together give a good impression of the Dutch mushroom industry”, says Piet Lempens, chairman of the organising committee. At one of the three locations, food will be served (‘Dinner in the South’).

    The programme of the bustours:


    A. Bommelerwaard

    CNC Exotic Mushrooms, substrate production exotics.

    De Hopwaag, Agaricus production, manual harvesting.

    Hooymans Compost, Agaricus compost production, phase I, II and III.

    Full programme

    With the farm walks / company visits, most of the - very full - programme of ‘Mushroom Week in The Netherlands’ is filled in. Lots of Dutch companies and suppliers offer activities for relations besides the official programme, such as Christiaens Group and Topterra Holland. Champfood will celebrate its 25 year jubilee on May 31st, but this event is not linked to the programme of Mushroom Week.
