Business Plan
    #4126338 - 05/03/05 03:00 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I am looking for a business plan to start a new mushroom business. Any input is appreciated. I would like to concentrate on exotic mushrooms, since there are 12 Champignion growers within 100Km from my residence. Any business plan in this area is appreciated.

wouldnt the business plan be specific to where you live and what you'll be producing? You need to find out what fiberous wastes around you are available for cheap for bulk substrates. then you need to find cost of land/warehouse space + any insurence that will be required. then you need to make a list of everything you will need and its cost and if its nessesary for start-up.

you also need to anaylze the market. you said there were already a few big growers near you. are they gonna be too much competition? You gotta have contracts lined up to get rid of the damn things too. and delivery people/vans/insurence. theres a lot of prep work involved as far as accounting and simulation before you even start growing, just make sure you have the market, the means of production and delivery, and the money. good luck.

Yes Eightball, "a list of everything you will need" is what I need. And also prices for fresh mushrooms, in foreign countries. What is the mark-up for mushrooms?

the list of supplies will vary depending on your methods and what exactly you'll be growing. you probably dont want the market prices for mushrooms in other countries. i would think finding local prices would be key. places will usually give u 1/2 of what they turn around and sell em for so the real money is in selling to restaurants, but then you have to deliver to many more locations than say dumping all of them off on one commercial distro who handles delivery to restraunts

marketing costs advertising ie yellow pages, tshirts, pens etc

production costs list and how much it costs you per month in non-renewable resources to produce the mushrooms as far as spawn, substrate, poly bags etc.

Frist thing you need is markets and market info. Where you going to sell? Dont make the mistake of trying to grow too many species, stick with one till you get your feet wet.

Mule you are a vendure? What do you vend. And i would also agree, look at the markets, see what is being sold and in what quality. Then grow something else a bit more unique and pretty.

Thanks for the advice. As I said, the only mushrooms sold fresh in my country are buttons and ports. There is no way I can guess prices for exotic mushrooms. What is the mark up price for mushrooms (in percent) in your country?

here exotics are usually 2-3x or more the price of buttons. usually working out to $3-7 per lb at the wholesale level to $20 per lb (sold by fractions of a lb) to consumers (ie grocery stores)
