Fresh mushroom producers South Mill Mushrooms and Champ’s Mushrooms have announced that the two companies will combine their operations.
Both companies will continue to operate independently in spite of the merger, and will retain their respective management teams.
According to the companies, the agreement will create “one of the largest mushroom producers and suppliers in North America”, supplying customers in both the US and Canada.
Michael Pia, co-CEO of South Mill said: “We are very excited to be partnering with the Quach Family and the entire Champ’s team.
“Champ’s and South Mill share similar values, with a demonstrated commitment to and care for their customers and employees.
“Together we will have production facilities on both North American coasts and a distribution platform to supply retail and food service channels nationwide.”
