Mushrooms Make Menus Better

Whether you are looking for flavor and umami, nutrition and performance, sustainability, consumer appeal or all of the above, mushrooms are the answer.

Meet Taco Tuesday’s Next-Door Neighbor: Mushroom Monday

What’s that you ask? Mushroom Monday is a day each week when we can all gather around the plate to enjoy one of the most delicious, nutritious and Earth-friendly foods: the fresh mushroom. No matter your restaurant’s vibe, no matter your style, Mushroom Monday is for you and your guests. Are you a restaurant with a mushroom dish you want to share with the world? There’s no better way to start than joining Mushroom Monday. 

The Blend™

It’s changing today’s menus. It’s changing how chefs can make a difference. It’s changing the way America eats. Blending finely-chopped or ground umami-rich mushrooms with meat makes America’s iconic menu items more delicious, nutritious and sustainable.


Named 2022’s “Ingredient of the Year” by the New York Times, and a “Food and Drink Trend Set to Soar in 2022” by Specialty Food Magazine, mushrooms are featured as the hottest food trend by major national publications. Find out what the trends analysts say.

Mushrooms for Sports Performance

Athletes—in fact all of us—are looking for performance foods, but want to eat in approachable, familiar ways.  The Blend ™ creates a true power meal since it offers less of the things that slow you down and more the nutrients that keep you at your best.
