Pilze-Nagy Ltd. (PILZE) – as a family-run medium-sized enterprise – has been working in the field of mushroom cultivation for almost 30 years. The main activities include substrate production for oyster mushrooms, cultivation of oyster mushrooms, distribution of fresh oyster mushrooms in wholesale and retail markets, and generation of electric power and heat energy from biogas production. Pilze-Nagy Ltd. is committed to implement measures of circular economy into its industrial processes. Due to the constant improvement of circular and sustainable operation, as well as by the pressure of the market, the company actively takes part in research and development. As a result, the company owns more own-developed know-how on the area of producing substrate for oyster mushrooms, utilising waste materials of mushroom production and especially fresh produce packaging technology.
Role in the project:
PILZE will implement and showcase the Farmtopia solution in SIP2 (Sustainable Innovation Pilot 2 – Mushroom Production) as a key player and a pilot location in Hungary.
