Zoos SA

Costa is Australia’s leading grower, packer and marketer of premium quality fresh fruit and vegetables.

Costa Adelaide Mushrooms is the second largest mushroom farm and most modern mushroom cultivation facility in Australia. The “farm” utilises state of the art processes to produce over 6,240 tonnes annually of primarily White Mushrooms as well as some Swiss Brown Mushrooms which are both packed for local and interstate markets.

Adelaide Mushrooms has a reputation for quality. Located in Monarto in Adelaide and spread over 360 acres of land, the purpose-built facility grows premium mushrooms that are then marketed around Australia

Adelaide Mushrooms boasts one of the most advanced mushroom growing facilities in Australia. It upholds an extraordinary level of quality control throughout the growing process – and it shows in the output.

It all begins with composting, which is located onsite at Monarto. There is full traceability of compost, which means that each and every box of mushrooms that leaves the premises can be traced back to the initial bales of hay, its growing cycle and who actually harvested the mushroom.

Adelaide Mushrooms are available loose or pre-packed. Look out for these mushrooms in all leading supermarkets and independent grocers.

We are pleased and excited to be partnering with Monarto Safari Park as they safeguard the extinct species and attempt to preserve their population. We proudly support Zoo’s SA to provide care for the wonderful animals and conservation projects in the wild.

A wide range of animals are known to eat mushrooms enjoying various health benefits. Mushrooms are rich in Vitamin B, they are also vegan, non-fortified dietary source of vitamin D.
