To-Jo Mushrooms Tony Summa Nominated to AMI Penn State Advisory Committee
AVONDALE, PA – To-Jo Mushrooms’ Growing Coordinator Tony Summa has been nominated to serve on the American Mushroom Institute’s Penn State Advisory Committee.
“I love the challenge of growing mushrooms; every day is different,” said Tony, in a company press release. “I am honored to serve the industry.”
Tony has been To-Jo’s Growing Coordinator for the last two and a half years and also serves on the AMI Food Safety Task Force. He brings nearly 20 years of mushroom experience and knowledge, as well as a degree in Business Economics from Penn State University, to his new advisory role.
The Advisory Committee consists of volunteers from throughout the mushroom industry.
