GROWING A BETTER NEW ZEALAND

Meadow Mushrooms: We’ve made sustainability our business.

We’ve made sustainability our business.

Mushrooms are, by nature, one of the world’s most sustainable and renewable foods. They’re ready to pick in days, require minimal natural resources and, thanks to their vertical shelf or tray growing method, achieve one of the best yields per square metre of land in the agricultural industry.

At Meadow Mushrooms, we’re inextricably linked to the land. The environment is an integral part of our business, which is why our commitment to sustainability guides our decision making every step of the way - from growing to packaging and everything in between.

Sustainable Packaging

Small changes, big impact.

Back in 2015 we eliminated nearly 80 tonnes of plastic waste by switching from a plastic to a biodegradable cardboard punnet. But we know there’s lots more we can do - and we’re just getting started.

GROWING A BETTER FUTURE

It’s all about regeneration.

Not only are mushroom crops one of the most resource efficient in the world, but the mushroom growing process goes full circle. Our compost is made up of agricultural by-products, and the ‘spent’ compost goes back to local farmers to use as fertiliser for their crops. So, nothing goes to waste.

In-roads on the journey to carbon neutrality.

Making changes that have a positive impact on the planet is nothing new for us. But, we’ve gone a step further and put a bold stake in the ground: to become one of the first large, carbon neutral certified producers in New Zealand by 2025 (or sooner)!
