One of the UK’s largest producers
and packers of mushrooms

Hughes currently supplies 300 tonnes of mushrooms per week to the majority of the main UK retailers from our original site in Dungannon, Co Tyrone. In 2018, we opened a state-of-the-art 11-acre site near Howden in England, designed to be among the most energy-efficient mushroom production facilities in the UK.

Making the mushroom business better

Innovation is central to everything Hughes Group does, from product development to operations, site and plant management. For example, Hughes developed the world’s first selenium enriched mushroom, marketed under the ‘Gathered’ brand.

UK Government guidelines recommend a daily selenium intake of 75 [mu]g/day for men and 60 [mu]g/day for women

Because soils right across Europe contain relatively low selenium levels, our intake can be as little as 50% of this amount. Working at our own growing facility and with grower partners, we embarked on a soil improvement programme to produce our selenium-enriched range.
