S.A.T. Champra, one of the most important companies in the production of button mushroom compost in Spain, launches a new mixed line for the 2014-2015 season. This is a result of the company’s process of renovation and modernization. It represents an investment of around €500,000.
This line of domestic manufacture introduces an essential improvement in the manufacturing process by optimizing the mix of raw materials used (straw, poultry manure, gypsum, water…). This allows them to obtain a more uniform and higher quality compost and, consequently, increase the quantity and quality of button mushrooms obtained in crops by Champra’s partners.
Founded in 1976, S.A.T. Champra is composed of 50 members. It currently produces about 40 million kilos of phase II button mushroom compost, which are distributed mainly among them.
Button mushroom production of all its members amounts to 10.7 million kilos, of which 9 million kilos are for canning and the rest for the fresh market.
