About Us

MycoForest is a gourmet and medicinal mushroom cultivation and distribution company

Established in 2018, MycoForest is a gourmet and medicinal mushroom cultivation and distribution company with the objective of bringing the myriad of nutritional, medicinal and philosophical benefits of this relatively unknown species to the people of this world. We currently grow high-quality Cordyceps militaris mushroom in a controlled atmosphere with a completely vegan process that uses brown rice, glucose, vegetable proteins & vitamins, etc.

We have built our first Cordyceps militaris mushroom lab located in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. It has a capacity of producing up to 10 kg dried mushroom fruit bodies and other mycelium by-products per month. And we are on the verge of expanding it up to 30 kg per month by the end of 2019. We maintain proper hygiene, cleanliness and follow all the standard food industry procedures during the whole process of mushroom cultivation i.e. substrate preparation, inoculation, incubation, harvesting, and packing.

Our Story

desk

Love for mother Earth & the passion to do something for the environment led Mr. Anurag Yadav (co-founder MycoForest) into the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK) to pursue Environmental Engineering and Management. During his stay at IITK, he learned about the formation of the earth, its natural systems and origin of life which quickly expanded into a grave interest in life, evolution of species, ecology and environment. The idea of growing and working with fungi or mushrooms struck while he was working on an air pollution research project at Shiv Nadar University.

And after two years of research, training (at Directorate of Mushroom Research (DMR), Solan and Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Gwalior), and practice in the field of mycology (the study of fungi), he together with his friend, co-founded MycoForest, mushroom cultivation and distribution firm which currently specializes in the cultivation of Cordyceps militaris, a parasitic fungus that feeds on insects and grows off their exoskeleton. A completely vegan method is followed where brown rice and other nutrients are derived from pure vegetarian sources.
