“Monaghan – A Great Location for a Leading Agri-Food Business”


Monaghan Mushrooms is a global leader in the production and marketing of fresh mushrooms. Founded in its home county in 1981 the company has found Monaghan to be a great place to run a thriving business. We employ nearly 600 people in Co. Monaghan and a further 2,400 in other parts of Ireland, in the UK and in Canada.

With 95% of all we produce being sold outside of Ireland the proximity of Monaghan to the huge UK market has enabled us to become one of the leading companies in the world in our sector. We have 13 different locations and a business that includes not just growing mushrooms, but also producing mushroom compost substrate. We can say that we simply couldn’t have achieved all that we have done, were it not for the loyalty and dedication of our staff, a number of whom have been with us since the early days.

We have well established links in the community which have served our business very well. Many of the raw materials for the production of mushrooms are the leftover by-products from other agricultural processes and we’re fortunate to have them available to us in the Monaghan area.

Monaghan people have a real can do attitude. They get stuck in and are a key reason behind our success. We’re also planning for the future and developing managers of the future. We’ve hired Monaghan based graduates in our graduate recruitment programme and have found this well educated pool of talent to be a big asset in our very competitive marketplace.

Monaghan Mushrooms 3As a business that’s grown and developed with the goodwill of the community and the help of organisations like Enterprise Ireland and Bord Bia we’d recommend Monaghan as a place to invest or as a great place to set up a new business.
