Product and Service

Mushroom-X Limited develops biotechnology-based mushroom technology platform, combining elements of DNA sequencing, loT automation technology and patent invention originated by our technical team. We are the initiator of “from gene to table". We perform DNA sequencing to authenticate and select species which are suitable for local cultivation and consists of specific nutrients, and establish our cell bank. We develop substrate formula using food waste and urban waste and climate-smart mushroom cultivation system as to realize precision farming. For food product development, we aim to produce high quality mushroom and develop innovative mushroom food products, especially targeting to the aging population. Beyond food, we turn the waste into a novel mycelium-based biomaterial. This new material is totally biodegradable and could be used as plastic substitutes and even construction materials. We provide technology and consultancy services to the farming industry. We aim to safeguard our food safety and promote local production.

Mushroom-X also tailor-makes unique mushroom STEAM workshops and offers consultancy services for local secondary and primary school students. We aim to promote the idea of sustainable development to our next generation and encourage mushroom application among the general public through education.

As nature-based education, we have developed the first ever web-based spore print collage IT program “x-Spore”. It combines scientific elements from Biology and Art Tech. Through creating spore print collage, the users will learn to appreciate and embrace the nature. Hence, it would further raise the environmental awareness.
