LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The United States is the second largest mushroom and truffle producer worldwide, giving the pass only to China. The country’s use of mushrooms has been steadily going up over the past several decades. The greatest per capita mushroom consumption is in the West and Midwest. Fresh mushrooms are in the highest demand, which is mainly attributed to major pizza chains shifting from using canned to fresh mushrooms. Looking forward, the industry is anticipated to witness fresh use upsurge as fresh packaging innovations increase and the demand for specialty mushrooms continues its upward trajectory.
Truffle production has expanded to the US some thirty years ago, and the business is currently gathering speed. The best conditions for growing these fungi are in the Mid-Atlantic States, such as Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North and South Carolina.
