Fresh Mushrooms Are a Growing Category
Retail sales of mushrooms increased 16.4% in 2020 – outpacing total produce (at 9%). Retail mushroom volume also increased during the same time frame at 13.4%. (November 2020)
This strong performance has led to an increase of over $223MM in retail dollars since 2013.
The Blend™ at Retail
The Mushroom Council partners and assists with several different types of promotions to help support your sales of fresh mushrooms. One of the most impactful programs is The Blend™. Learn more about how you can leverage and implement our templated or custom promotional programs.
As a top “showcase” category, mushrooms can significantly impact the overall image of the produce department, but the key to increased sales lies in proper merchandising and cold chain management. The Mushroom Council has several resources available to help you promote mushrooms.
