Built for Scale
Starting in 2019, we’ve rolled out the world’s biggest network of Mushroom® Packaging plants. With more openings scheduled across Europe, you could even say we’re growing like Mycelium itself.
Beatles guitarist and committed Buddhist George Harrison used to live in Esher. And we’ve now done our bit for the town’s Karma by making it the base for our HQ and the UK’s first mycelium-based packaging plant.
With over 7,000 square feet dedicated to Mushroom® Packaging, Esher felt like a statement of intent when we opened there – to take this new material to the market at scale.
A village in the Greater Nottingham area, Attenborough shares its name with the legendary broadcaster and journalist David. The village is now home to the UK’s largest Mushroom® Packaging facility, more than doubling our UK-based capacity. We’re sure Sir David would approve.
Sofia is one of the oldest capital cities in Europe, extant for 7000 years and recorded since the Romans took possession in 29BC. Today it is a thoroughly modern city with a vibrant tech start up scene and now home to the world’s largest Mushroom® Packaging plant.
Our first inoculation plant, the Beeston facility is where we combine agricultural by-product (mostly Hemp) with Mycelium cultures. The busy bees of Beeston consider their town a hive of activity, although the name probably derives from the Anglo-Saxon for “bent grass.”
