The project target is to create highly profitable production of mushrooms using domestic raw materials and ensuring the internal market of local products with the prospect of execution exports. The project will upgrade the existing production capacity, improve working conditions, reduce production costs and ensure regular supply of mushrooms to the customers.
In addition to growing mushrooms, drying and freezing of mushrooms is also supposed to provide their transportation over long distances. The design production capacity is 100 tons per year.
