A scoping study to review fungi based global innovations to inform product development opportunities (MU20004)
What was it all about?
Running from 2021 to 2022, this short investment explored the use of mushrooms in plant-based food product innovation and informed the industry of new market opportunities and their potential viability in the Australian context.
This project yielded the following key outputs:
- A mushroom product compendium of over 180 products across 13 categories
- Three deep explorations (case studies) of novel mushroom-based food innovation activities
- Key insights and considerations from each case study
- Three novel food product concepts using Agaricus bisporus.
Read ‘Scoping Global Innovations’ on page 42 in the Australian Mushroom Journal which provides a summary of the project and its potential benefits to industry.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Mushroom Fund.
