UK mushroom sales up

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE IRISH Republic exported more mushrooms to the UK in 2010, and a better exchange rate helped to offset ongoing price pressure in the sector, says the Irish Food Board, Bord Bia, in its annual 'Irish Food, Drink and Horticulture' report. Irish producers supply more than 25% of the total UK market, which had a retail value of GBP353 million (USD559 million) in the year ending 31 October 2010. The market increased by just over 3% in value and just under 2% in volume. Demand was boosted by cold weather at the beginning and end of 2010. An EU co-funded mushroom promotion will take place in the UK between 2011-13 and this is expected to boost Irish sales.
