MISTA Invites Functional Mushroom Producer Sempera Organics

Functional mushroom ingredient supplier Sempera Organics joined MISTA, the prestigious invite-only food innovation platform that unites the most innovative food companies to help transform the global food system to meet the needs of the future. San Francisco-based MISTA helps its member businesses innovate by providing access to experts from nearly every discipline in the food system as well as commercial kitchens and development labs to facilitate new food advances. From tea, to flour, to meat substitutes, mushrooms have a plethora of uses in food that have grown increasingly popular. Sempera Organics looks forward to discovering and refining the next uses for mushrooms with its MISTA partners.

“Demand for functional mushrooms is growing as more people learn about their health benefits, and we are grateful that MISTA has given us the opportunity to develop new methods of using them in food,” said Sempera Organics CEO, Nirmal Nair. “As our team discovers delicious, new uses for fungi, we are pleased to work with MISTA to create and commercialize new foods to nourish and delight people, moving us all toward the future of food.”

“MISTA is excited to welcome Sempera Organics as a Member to our hyper-connected ecosystem as we see the value fungi can play in creating a decentralized, regenerative food system that nourishes people and planet,” said Scott May, Founder and Head of MISTA. “Mushroom and mycelium solutions will be critical in delivering on the consumer promise of taste, nutrition, clean label and cost.”

As demand for functional mushroom increases and it continues being used in food products and nutraceuticals, Sempera Organics serves as the premier supplier meeting this need. Cultivating mushroom varieties such as lion’s mane, cordyceps, reishi, chaga, turkey tail, shitake, maitake, almond mushroom, agarikon, and king oyster in its own state-of-the-art lab, Sempera Organics’ proprietary growing methods maximize these varietals’ growth, produce the most nutrient-dense mushrooms, and accelerate production time for products. Additionally, Sempera brings companies these ingredients on a reduced supply chain, assuring faster and more reliable delivery than other ingredient suppliers. Read more:
