The mushroom industry in the European Union is taking significant steps towards sustainability. For example, some farms are using renewable energy sources, circular economy practices, and eco-friendly packaging materials to make the most of their efforts in a sustainable way. These efforts are crucial in promoting a healthier planet and food system.
BIOSCHAMP supports a sustainable mushroom industry with the development of low peat alternative casing materials, contributing to a reduced use of pesticides.
Eurochamp's commitment to sustainability
Economical and environmental sustainability in the mushroom industry is a key priority for the sector: mushroom cultivation must be profitable and sustainable in the long term.
In the near future, however, chemical pesticides will no longer be available for various reasons (reduced effectiveness, discontinued production, export requirements). Finding new alternatives to these tools is a priority for the mushroom farmer. Not only because it has a direct impact on their yields and production costs, but also to ensure a profitable minimum production.
This next generation of pest control tools will also be safer for the end consumer because there are no pesticides. They are also more respectful of the environment.
For all these reasons, Eurochamp is strongly committed to the Bioschamp project.
