Explore Our Mushroom Products
Not only do we offer our products in bulk boxes and bags, but we also offer a wide selection of mushroom products to meet the demands of your consumers. Using a variety of mushrooms on your menu allows you to offer popular flavor trends without sacrificing your total plate costs.
Here are some of the mushrooms we deliver to those in the foodservice industry.
Fresh Mushrooms: White, Brown, Specialty, and Dried
The most versatile mushroom of our offerings, white mushrooms are culinary chameleons: they are a blank canvas ready to blend in or take center stage in any dish!
Here are three reasons for a shift to brown mushrooms. They have a longer shelf life, a more robust umami profile, and are generally more nutritious. Choose Baby Bellas or Portabellas and elevate your flavors!
While we carry a lot of traditional mushrooms, such as white and brown mushrooms, we also have a wide variety of specialty mushrooms, including Shiitake, Oyster, Lion’s Mane, and many more!
With other mushroom suppliers, you may find that some specialty mushrooms are only available during certain parts of the year. With Monterey Mushrooms, we believe in enjoying the flavor and benefits of mushrooms all year round!
Our dried mushrooms make it convenient for you to serve your customers what they want, no matter what season it is.
Shelf Stable Mushrooms
We also offer the following products to those in the foodservice industry:
Let’s Blend®: Our quick and healthier substitute to all-meat recipes. Let’s Blend saves you time in the kitchen with pre-chopped, blanched, and cooled mushrooms that help you cut down on the sodium content.
Processed: If this product had a middle name, it would be “convenient.” Canned and prepped, these mushrooms are what you need when in a pinch; just rinse, serve, and let your customers enjoy!
Marinated: Our marinated mushrooms are ready right out of the box (out of the jar, to be exact) and give you a quick and easy option to serve to your customers. While simple to use, the flavors are anything but simple. They’re zesty and garlicky and ready to go at the pop of a lid!
