Irish mushrooms producer Monaghan Mushrooms has opened its new Eur12m state-of-the-art mushroom growing facility at Tyholland in County Monaghan. The new facility, which will generate 150 jobs, comprises 18 mushroom growing houses with a total growing area of 21,306 sq m. When operating at full capacity the plant will have an output of 115 tonnes of mushrooms a week, equal to an annual output of 5,980 tonnes, the vast proportion of which will be exported to the UK.

The new facility will allow Monaghan Mushrooms to expand its overall output of mushrooms and so increase supply to customers in the UK and Ireland. Monaghan Mushrooms holds 45% of the £350m (Eur425m) UK mushroom market, which is the largest in Europe.

With annual sales of Eur150m, Monaghan Mushrooms is one of Europe’s largest mushroom producers. The company supplies all the leading retail multiples in the UK with fresh mushrooms daily. Monaghan Mushrooms was founded in 1981 by local entrepreneur Ronnie Wilson.
