Ministry of Mushrooms, Inc. was founded and is lead by a dynamic team of young entrepreneurs, Marco Lobregat, Jose Javier Ortoll and Victor Sala who are passionate about mushrooms and mycological solutions. Whether developing products of the highest quality or building client relations and customer satisfaction, Marco, Jose Javier and Victor help hone each other’s skills to be a fully optimized team.
Jose Javier Ortoll and Victor Sala bring together their knowledge of mushroom cultivation and engineering to develop the green, efficient and sustainable mushroom farm, production and R&D center. Marco brings his market knowledge and expertise in project management and international sales to ensure that the daily operations drive the company to continuous growth and success.
After a year of setting-up, operating and continuous R&D the team of rookie mushroom growers experimenting in an old bathroom converted into a make-shift growing room is now an established mushroom company and the Ministry of Mushrooms brand is quickly gaining recognition. The company has delivered mushrooms to homes around Metro Manila every week for the last year and has recently begun providing mushrooms to restaurants, markets, caterers and food processors.
Ministry of Mushrooms currently employs 6, skilled, hardworking and dedicated farmers together with one promising administrative associate, Cathy Delos Trinos. The company is working on developing the industry and market through communicating and building partnerships with mushroom experts and the academe in the Philippines and around the world. As it continues to grow it will share its technical knowledge and services to other budding mushroom growers and ventures to forge mushroom production and processing as viable source of income especially for rural communities.
