Our healthy mushrooms for your loved one to enjoy
Mushroom’s growing period is approximately 100 days. At Shukaen, we produce different types of mushrooms with a lot of care in a hygienic environment. One of our recommended mushrooms is Hogushi Shimeji that have had their bases removed and have been cut into pieces for easy cooking. They are low in calories with a good source of calcium, vitamins and minerals that boost metabolism, and dietary fiber. Our hogushi shimeji mushrooms are chemical free and eco-friendly with less waste, grown in clean and safe facilities. Featuring in mild flavor with “umami”, they can be easily used in any dishes: curry, stew, soup, pizza, stir-fry and fries.
No prep and no mess in the kitchen! The bases are removed and the mushrooms are cut into separate pieces for easy cooking! Everything included is edible. Hogushi shimeji are grown in the chemical free environment and they don’t need to be washed before cooking.
Thinking of the environment, the removed mushroom bases are used for compost and recycled for future agriculture. No plastic tray containers are used. This ensures less waste in the kitchen, efficient packaging, and speedy delivery. We are more efficient and reduce water consumption.
In general, when mushrooms are stored in packaging, there is air in the bag. Our vacuum sealed packaging allows us to keep our mushrooms fresher and longer. In the future, we plan to use freshness-preserving films to further preserve freshness.
The best mushroom production in Kyushu, the southern island of Japan
Oki City, where our company is located, is one of the best water areas in Japan, with 16% of the total area.
