South Mill Champs, a US-based mushroom cultivator and supplier, has announced a cross-border partnership with Mexican private investment company Grupo APAL. The joint venture, named Royal Champs S. de R.L. de C.V., aims to establish composting and mushroom growing operations in Mexico for import into the US and Canada.

According to a statement, Royal Champs will begin construction on an innovative mushroom facility in Queretaro, Mexico later this year. The facility will include composting, mushroom growing farms, and packing operations on a 257-acre site. Mike Pia Jr., VP of Business Growth at South Mill Champs, stated, “This expansion reflects our commitment to delivering the freshest mushrooms from coast to coast.”

In recent years, South Mill Champs has expanded its operations in British Columbia, Pennsylvania, and various locations in the US. The company’s focus on modernization and innovation in the mushroom industry across North America is evident through these expansions.

South Mill Champs supplies retail, foodservice, and wholesale channels, as well as mushroom processing customers. Armando Paredes Arroyo, President of Grupo APAL, expressed excitement about the partnership and the potential for growth in Mexico’s mushroom production industry.

The company recently acquired World Fresh Produce, a fresh fruit grower and sourcing business in New Jersey. This strategic move further solidifies South Mill Champs’ position in the food and beverage industry. By partnering with Grupo APAL and expanding its operations, South Mill Champs continues to lead the way in the mushroom industry across North America.
