The South African Mushroom Growers Association (SAMFA) had their annual local industry conference on 10 and 11 May.
The conference was hosted at Kloofzicht Lodge, and the group of 60 people was mainly made up of local delegates. A few Dutch and Irish delegates added an international flavor, including keynote speaker Hennie van den Einde (Walkro), who gave two excellent talks. Other speakers were Dave Austin (Harte Peat), Lise Korsten, Linda Meyer,Thierry Regnier and Riana Greenblo.
The conference ended with a farm visit to Highveld Mushrooms, one of the major producers in SA. A full report on the conference can be found in Mushroom Business 47.
