At the last board meeting of the Bund deutscher Champignon und Kulturpilzanbauer e.V. (BDC) two new members of the association were confirmed. Monaghan Pilze GmbH and Mushroom Park GmbH joined this year. In the telephone meeting on May 5, 2020, the board and advisory board members made it clear that one can only meet the future with solidarity in German mushroom cultivation. The mushroom farms have many challenges to overcome. Last but not least, the corona pandemic has shown how important an association can be in order to effectively reflect interests and concerns in politics.
