Funghi di Treviso is a co-operative formed by a group of mushroom growers in the Treviso region (close to Venice) with the aim of creating a joint marketing strategy for their mushrooms.
As Christiaens had already supplied several of the members in the past with climate installations,
computers and machinery, the group had enough confidence in Christiaens to commission a turnkey growing facility of 24 rooms to answer growing market demands for their produce.
Building started in July 2002. 7 Months later the first mushrooms were being harvested. The farm is set up to handle an annual production of approximately 2000 tons. High production levels and
excellent mushroom quality were the decisive factors motivating one of the members to commission another project for a 12 room growing farm in 2003.
