The 2022 harvest forecast for mushrooms

Market stocks of porcini mushrooms from last year’s harvest are very low.

We hope the 2022 harvest will be good enough to secure sufficient stock for the coming year, because even our suppliers’ warehouses are emptier than usual.

The situation is equally challenging when it comes to other wild mushroom varieties such as chanterelles, horns of plenty and black morels, because stores are empty and supplier countries are offering virtually no new supplies.

The untreated oil is not filtered; the particles that make it cloudy settle naturally when the oil is left to rest.
