A closed loop production system

Summary

The supply chain for the mushroom material was developed from the ground up, providing an alternative income source to farmers and other industries through the purchase of organic “waste” materials used as feedstock to grow fungal mycelia into any desired shape. Waste streams utilized for this have included, but are not limited to, agricultural waste, cellulose sludge from paper waste, lobster shells and even textile waste—all sourced within 500 miles of manufacturing. The end product is entirely natural, renewable, home compostable, having a net-positive impact while being high performing and highly cost-competitive.
