Is there any training for Shimejito farm owners and employees?

The option for a free course, when you buy a Shimejito mushroom farm is available, with no impact on pricing.

We offer training. As a bonus, our course is provided in collaboration with the University of Lisbon and will give you ECTS.

 

How does Shimejito choose the production sites?

To have the best results for our partners and the communities, we propose the installation of farms where the population density is above 10,000 (ten thousand) inhabitants within a radius of 5 (five) km.

The population is our ratio for a successful business venture and is also our limit for the installation of further mushroom farms, controlling competition amongst partners.

 

What is the production capacity of a Shimejito mushroom farm?

Our farms capacity varies according to size.

We project that the smaller farms will produce up to 500 Kg/month of mushrooms (70m² seventy square meters)

Larger farms will provide up to 1,000 Kg / Month of mushrooms, for farms of 140 m² (one hundred and forty square meters).

 

How does Shimejito guarantee the quality of mushrooms?

Both the Biofactories and the farms follow our design. 

We control the process and technology.

As such, the farms receive standard Shimejito substrate, in our proprietary packaging, and the production is IoT controlled.

The circular system and automation will do the most to guarantee homogenous production of organic mushrooms, with superior quality.

We will also randomly control human interaction with the product, through courtesy visits and training programs.

 

How does Shimejito distribute and sell mushrooms?

Shimejito maintains a marketplace integrated with social networks, where it will be possible to sell mushrooms directly to the end consumer, restaurants and grocery stores, while large-scale distribution to food distribution centres, supermarkets, restaurants takes place through established partnerships. By Shimejito.

 

Does the producer have any advantages with selling his mushrooms through MarketPlace, maintained by the Shimejito website?

Yes, there is a possibility of commissioning.
