Monterey Mushrooms' Mike O'Brien Discusses the Company's Growth and Capacity for the Foodservice Industry
MONTEREY, CA - At this year’s PMA Foodservice conference in Monterey, CA, we joined Monterey Mushrooms' VP of Sales & Marketing Mike O’Brien to learn all about the company’s future plans for growth and penetration into the foodservice industry.
“We’re talking to a lot of new prospective customers with the increased consumption of mushrooms and the fact it's high in vitamin D and low and sodium. It’s also a healthy alternative to meat,” O’Brien tells me. “That’s causing a huge increase of consumption of mushrooms.”
O’Brien also touched on Monterey’s capacity to expand in the foodservice industry, citing this new wave of mushrooms replacing meat products as an exciting opportunity.
