BDC Jahrestagung 2010 in Straelen

  • On the 1st and 2nd of October the charming German village of Straelen, near Venlo, hosted the 62nd annual general meeting of the BDC (Bund Deutscher Champignon- und Kulturpilzanbauer). On Friday the 1st there was a full program with technical and marketing lectures, and on the 2nd the participants were given the opportunity to visit the all new mushroom farm of Wankum Champignon. In the forthcoming edition of Mushroom Business we will pay extra attention to this farm, with an exclusive interview with two of the investors.
