More than $ 5 million is collected annually by US mushroom growers for research and marketing of mushrooms. These funds are managed by a special organization called the Mushroom Council. The mission of this organization is to ensure the attractiveness of the mushroom as a food product for consumers. As a consequence, this should ensure good prices and sales for mushroom growers. And the Mushroom Council successfully copes with the tasks.

Within the framework of the Days of Ukrainian Mushroom Growing, we will hold a discussion in which the mushroom growers attending the conference will take part.

The Mushroom Council will present:

Bart Minor – current president of the Mushroom Council,
Laura Phelps – President of the American Mushroom Institute at the time of the creation of the Mushroom Council, who put a lot of effort into building the organization,
Curtis Jürgensmeyer is the CEO of JM Farms, whose father was at the origin of the organization.

During the discussion, we will consider the following questions:

  • What mechanisms allow US mushroom growers to raise money for marketing
  • What is the effect of marketing activities to popularize mushrooms and who are the beneficiaries
  • What are the main areas of use of funds
  • What is the role of the state in the functioning of the organization

All participants of the Ukrainian Mushroom Days conference can join the discussion. The discussion is scheduled for the evening of the second day of the conference, October 21.



We will have a live discussion with Mike Stephan, Monterey Mushrooms Sales Director for the US Eastern Region, and Lindsey Occhipinti, Monterey Mushrooms marketing manager.
Monterey Mushrooms is the largest mushroom grower in North America, selling up to 1,000 tons of mushrooms daily!

  • How to avoid daily price competition?
  • Why is Amazon’s price higher than WallMart’s?
  • Why are US retailers ready to fix prices and supply volumes, and how to achieve this?
  • What kind of marketing campaigns help in the sale of champignon?
  • Where are small farms sold in the US?
  • What to do with the second grade?
