Mycelia at the Mushroom Days 2019

Wed 29th May, 2019

The 35th edition of the Mushroom Days took place last week, in May 2019, in Brabanthallen, ‘s Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands.

Knowing the importance of this trade show for the mushroom sector, of course Mycelia was there!

On the first day of the trade show, during the Welcome dinner, the ''Ambassador of the Mushroom Industry Award'' is handed out to someone that has been contributing to a positive image of the mushroom industry.

This year, Mycelia’s general manager and founder, Magda Verfaillie, won the ''Ambassador of the Mushroom Industry Award''. She has been in the mushroom industry for more than 40 years, basically her whole life, trying to improve the mushroom industry and put mushrooms in the spotlight.

After founding Mycelia 40 years ago, she has specialised in the production of spawn for lignicolous mushrooms. Sharing knowledge was always her goal, and that’s why she organizes courses in mycelium production and substrate production.

Furthermore, she is a freelance reporter for the magazine Mushroom Business and last year she realised a life dream by organising the Wood Fungi Conference.
