Walsh Mushrooms has completed a £2.25m extension of its Eversham packing and distribution site.

The company, which already supplies more than 10% of the total UK mushroom market, said the 15,000 sq ft extension would increase its facility by a third.

It also installed solar panels on the extension, having already spent £225k on solar panels for the main building. It estimated solar power would now provide 60% of the site’s electricity.
