We are an ecosystem present in Portugal, Brasil, Spain and the UK, where nowadays we have over 2000 Shimenautas, 8 farmers, 4 Innovation Hubs, research centers at universities in southern Europe and Brazil.

What do we do?

We possess and develop innovative technology for the production and sale of mushrooms.

What is unique about Shimejito’s technology?

Our technology is revolutionary on two grounds:

  1. It permits high yields of production in shorter periods

  2. It guarantees that the farms are decentralised, promoting local production and local economies.

If you got here because you believe that mushrooms are the future, and you are considering having your own activity around fungi, then you are in the right place. We know how to get you started in a great way: Profitable, Green, and Community-friendly.

We will get you to enter the mushroom business ☺

How can Shimejito make me a Mushroom Business-person?

We have a full system in place, from marketing to sales, and from substrate production to mushroom farming.

We offer you two ways to enter the mushroom business:

  1. At the source, you can be our partner in a substrate-producing Biofactory, which requires a more significant financial commitment.

  2. You can be our partner managing a local mushroom farm, and you will use the substrate we provide to grow and sell fresh organic mushrooms locally.

  3. We do have a second and a half offer, which includes a course in mushroom agribusiness 4.0, with the possibility to your own Mushroom Farm plus a free university recognised course.

How do we innovate?

  1. Our proprietary Biotechnology allows us to produce the best substrate in the market; it allows for high yield production in shorter production cycles.

  2. We have developed our production method with the use of machinery, IoT, and our own proprietary software. With us, you will produce more using less. That is agriculture 4.0!

  3. We have developed our Marketplace allowing for mainstream online sales. We are also building a close-knit community of like-minded people that aims to get meaningful personal connections, creating infinite opportunities through networking.

We already took care of our reliable partners and buyers offering a business with full support from the start, in managing and taking care of the externalities.

Is it hard to manage a mushroom biofactory or a farm?

Managing a biofactory or a farm can be a challenge but we will do it for you, or with you. With us, you can decide whether we manage your business and send you money every month, or you can learn how to handle this business.

But there is more of it! We connect all dots in the production of mushrooms. We equip you with a method that takes care of your marketing and guarantees you to reach the final consumer, allowing you to focus just on the production.
