The Monaghan Mushrooms empire seems to be ever expanding, just like the universe.
With the acquisition of Sussex Mushrooms confirmed in September, and now with the acquisition of Walkro the substrate manufacturer, the company is increasing its portfolio once more.
As some market observers have pointed out, when we are in the bad times economically, it can be a good time to make acquisitions and expand.
Prices can be lower and terms more favourable. Monaghan have also moved into a new realm with their recent creation of a new mushroom.
The Forestiere mushroom is said to have the earthy flavour of a wild cep. It certainly seems as though the company is tackling these tough economic times with the combined tools of innovation and acquisition.
