Costa’s carefully managed crops are tended by a team of highly skilled and committed growers. Full control of growing and distribution means Costa can guarantee access to fresh, quality mushrooms 52 weeks of the year.
Costa grows button, cup and flat mushrooms. These all hail from the one crop, yet are harvested at different stages of the growing cycle.
The mushrooms are grown, handpicked and graded for quality, then packed and delivered daily, all within 24 hours of harvest. They supply both loose mushrooms for self-select, and pre-packaged mushrooms in whole or pre-sliced punnets for quality and convenience.
Costa’s pre-packed mushrooms are harvested directly into their punnets – they are only handled once during the harvesting process. This reduces bruising and helps maintain the quality and freshness customers expect from our mushrooms.
Costa Mushrooms are supplied to all major retailers and local independent stores via the wholesale market.
