Mushrooms in the News: 10-06-17
This week, we’re seeing a range of coverage by trades, college newspapers and top consumer websites. Highlights include:
- The Produce News highlighted the growing demand for mushrooms in retail, thanks in part to The Blend.
- College publications at UCLA, University of Montana and University of Alaska Fairbanks announced that blended burgers are available in their campus dining halls.
- Huffington Post featured a beautiful Mushroom Breakfast Pizza.
On Oct. 1, we launched our Team #Blenditarian social campaign to encourage pledges in conjunction with football season. Fans can visit blenditarian.com/TeamBlenditarian to “join the team” (and recruit others, too!) to be entered to win game day prizes. Since the launch, we’ve seen a flurry of social buzz using the #blenditarian hashtag, as well as many new pledges.
Finally, on Oct. 5, Albertsons/Safeway registered dietitian Molly Tevis hosted a 7-minute Facebook Live video to demo 50/50 “Mini Umami Burgers.”

MC Instagram: Thanks for following along with our #ShroomCam last month. The Shroom Cam may be gone but watch this time lapse of the entire growing process. In just 6 days, these mushrooms went from tiny pins to full grown shrooms. #MushroomsInMotion.
