What is the origin story of Mycopia?


“Mycopia” is a brand for fresh culinary mushrooms of Gourmet Mushrooms, Inc. (GMI). “Mycobiotic” is the brand name for mushroom-based nutraceutical products of the company. Both brand names are registered trademark of GMI which was founded by me and a partner in 1977.

What are some of the biggest challenges facing Mycopia in the future?

The biggest challenge for GMI in the future is how we manage our growth. We have experienced a steady rise in interest in specialty mushrooms over the past many years. However, the interest in fungi has blossomed exponentially in recent years, particularly after the Covid-19 pandemic. Demands for both our culinary and nutraceutical have been on the rise. The main challenge for our growth is how we build our leadership team to adapt to the expansion of our business. Fresh mushrooms are perishable with a shelf life of less than 2 weeks. The increase in production needs to be coordinated with new account acquisition. Efficient production, distribution logistics, and regulatory compliance will key area to be developed.

What is unique about Mycopia compared to competitors?

GMI is vertically integrated in its mushroom cultivation for both Mycopia and Mycobiotic lines of products. The company maintains and produces all its mushroom cultures to cultivate different mushroom varieties. GMI develops its own formulations and cultivation processes with constant refinements. GMI values relationships and not transactions. The company appreciates all stakeholders it works with including vendors, customers, service providers employees and its communities.
