Mushroom farmer Doug Shirippa has invested $50 million building a state of the art mushroom plant, employing 200 staff.
It's one and a half times the size of the MCG, comprising 30 electronically-monitored cool rooms for growing.
Did you know that Australia produces 60 thousand tonnes of mushrooms a year for the domestic market? Mushrooms are also the second most valuable horticultural crop on Australia's fresh market. (Annabelle Homer)
The technology is from Holland, and the dirt the mushrooms grow in is imported from Ireland and Germany. Mr Shirripa says it's a big investment but it's worth it.
"It's been phenomenal," he says.
"Going back 25 years ago, the per capita consumption was about 1.6 kilos per head.
"We're now about 3.1 kgs per head, so it's been a phenomenal growth in Australia." -ABC.net
