Office and production 1999

ChampFood International is headquartered in Vierlingsbeek, The Netherlands. We produce ChampFood, a worldwide available natural and organic supplement for growing mushrooms.


Our company was established in 1991 and has ever since served the mushroom industry as a manufacturer, supplier and distributor of ChampFood. By permanently applying the latest technology in the area of absorption-requirements of mushrooms, oysters and shii-takes, ChampFood has become an industry-leading product.  Our company provides a wide range of ChampFood products all over the world.


ChampFood Benefits

Although some available compost products are described as high-quality, those often lack the appropriate amounts and types of proteins (amino acids), vitamins, minerals and trace elements to achieve maximum mushroom growth and quality.


ChampFood positively distinguishes itself because:


  •    Mushrooms will gradually absorb ChampFood nutrients more efficiently than nutrients out of normal compost
  •    ChampFood provides the required minerals to grow mycelium and fruit body
  •    ChampFood both optimize the vitamins, trace levels, amino acids and minerals in compost and promotes the absorption of nutrients
  •    In addition ChampFood products supports enzyme reactions in the compost


Results from using ChampFood

Optimal nutritional balance and the extended release of nutrients (energy, proteins and minerals) will result in:


  •     Improved quality of mushrooms
  •     Caps that remain closed longer
  •     Improved density
  •     Pure white color
  •     Longer shelf-life


Using ChampFood products will increase your mushroom yield by 10- 30%.





ChampFood is a natural and organic compost supplement that improves mushroom

quality and results in higher yields and improved quality. ChampFood products

can be characterized as:


  •     An all natural supplement
  •     An extended-release protein and amino acid compost additive
  •     Improved sterility through special treatment
  •     Causes no rise in temperature beyond problematic levels
  •     Scientifically produced and permanently adjusted to the latest technology

Most ChampFood products are composed of denatured soybean meal, other protein

sources, lipids and minerals. During the production process, the protein in the raw materials is protected with a coating to provide a delayed nutrient release. This coating also prevents competitive molds from using easily available nutrients.


ChampFood International provides a wide range of supplements with a variety of protein and mineral levels. Even rich compost does not contain the amounts and types of protein (amino acids) needed for a maximum production, ChampFood products optimize the protein level, while minerals are a requirement to establish mycelium growth and fruit body formation.


While choosing our products it is important to separate supplementation at spawning and supplementation at casing. In all cases using ChampFood products will result in excellent yield increase combined with outstanding quality of the final product.

Customized supplements

ChampFood International is able to customize any supplement with orders of 2 ton or more. We will add extra vitamins, minerals or trace elements, change release times, add a special ingredient or increase protein upon your request. By using the latest balancing program technology, our nutritionist can reduce your supplement expenses at short notice.


Flexibility in delivery

Champfood supplements are available in 50lbs or 25kg paper bags, bulk bags from 800 to 1250kg, or bulk-truck. Our paper bags are provided with a plastic liner in order to protect the contents from moisture. We moreover shrink-wrap our bags to improve security during transport. ChampFood International can accommodate your preferred form of shipping, whether it’s a personal pick-up, shipped common-carrier or shipped around the world. Our Customer Service can assist you in choosing the most cost-efficient way.


No-confusion bags

To eliminate confusion, our bags are color-coded, enabling you to always know which bag contains which supplement. Our bags are moreover marked with a product and identification number enabling ChampFood International to track-and-trace from raw material to final product.


Research lab

ChampFood conducts in-house supplement research in our own micro growing-tray laboratory.


Field research

Following the micro-tests, products are tested on a 320m² shelf system at a commercial mushroom farm. By growing mushrooms in two rooms on a weekly basis, this farm provides the opportunity to test all our standard and experimental products. Every detailed observation is recorded accurately and as such provides reliable information for the development of new ChampFood products.


Diagnostic lab

ChampFood International works with global research institutes and consultancy companies. Combined with our long-term expertise this enables us to answer all your questions and provide you with substantiated advice.


Mixing equipment

When using ChampFood it is important that the product is mixed with the compost as even and homogeneously as possible to ensure optimum results. Our supplement hopper was designed in-house to achieve this proper mixing.  Contact your ChampFood representative or email to learn more about the technical aspects or about mixing systems that fits your requirements.



Farm visits

We gladly visit you at your farm to provide you with in depth information on how to manage and improve your mushroom operation. ChampFood International can help you to benchmark your business.


Technical information

Our international staff is just a phone call away. For technical assistance ChampFood International  can be reached between 8:00am to 5:00pm CET. Don’t hesitate to call us with any question you might have on supplements, release time of nutrients, safety, mixing systems, application rates or any other technical assistance you are looking for.



Supplies by providers

All ChampFood ingredients provided by our suppliers are subject to basic quality-control testing. Our suppliers are well aware of our testing-practices and therefore provide us with ingredients that comply with our specifications.

In order to avoid contamination, we manage the transportation of our supplies ourselves by using our own trucks most of the time. Our drivers conduct an organoleptic test at arrival to establish structure, color and contamination of the raw ingredients. On arrival at our plant we will analyze levels of protein, moisture and residue in our own lab.


In-house storage

All ingredients are stored in separate silos until applied to our supplements in order to avoid cross-contamination. Our products are manufactured in a dedicated plant which eliminates contamination with unwanted ingredients. Between batches, the silos are thoroughly cleaned to eliminate build-up and mold-growth.


Track-and-trace system

Our manufacturing process can be fully tracked and traced. Every bag is marked with a unique identification number, making your ChampFood product traceable from raw ingredient to the end-products. Our manufacturing process is fully automated and involves only the minimum of human interception, resulting in lower costs for labor and better savings for you.


Dedicated plant

ChampFood International produces mushroom supplements in its own dedicated plant, located in Vierlingsbeek the Netherlands. The ChampFood International plant solely produces ChampFood mushroom supplements. Our plant receives ingredients for the production of ChampFood mushroom supplements only and therefore we do not have to compromise between multi-purpose ingredients. Our dedicated facility enables us to produce a uniform, free-flowing, non-dusty product in a time-efficient way. It also enables us to produce small tailor-made blends.
