Dirfis mushrooms was established in 2003 by two agronomists, Lefteris Lachouvaris and Thanassis Mastrogiannis. The farm is located near Mount Dirfis, on the island of Euboea. The facilities include a substrate plant, 20 mushroom growing tunnels, a modern processing facility and an olive tree plantation.
We dry our mushrooms through an innovative drying technology which has been developed at the University of Hohenheim and Agricultural university of Athens and has been used in Greece only from our company. Our solar drying technology significantly improves the quality of dried mushrooms in terms of colour, texture, and taste, boosting the intensity of the flavors. The main advantage of solar drying is the natural enrichment of mushrooms with vitamin D, as ergosterol is converted to ergocalciferol under exposure to UV light.
We use our sun-dried mushrooms as the basic ingredient for a variety of products like soups, coffee substitutes, snacks and pasta. All those products that contain our sun-dried mushrooms have additional value because are High in fibers, Protein Rich, Low salt, Low Fat and vitamin D rich ( more than 500mg Vitamin D/ 100g dry product) . In all cases all those claims are resulting because the addition of our sun-dried mushrooms. Without the addition of our mushrooms those products would be simple products. Our delicious mushroom risotto for a example would be a simple risotto with mushrooms without the addition our specially dried procedure.
