CHRIS ALONZO

PRESIDENT, PIETRO INDUSTRIES

Chris is a third generation mushroom farmer in the Kennett Square, PA area growing over 20,000,000 lbs of white and portabella mushrooms. Chris is also one of 5 family co-operative owners of Laurel Valley farms, a substrate facility which produces around 4,000 tons of Phase II compost per week. Mushrooms from the farm are sold wholesale to Country Fresh Mushrooms, also a family farming co-operative where Chris is part owner. The mushrooms travel to most states east of the Mississippi and as far south as Florida and as far West as California. Chris built a 115,000 sq ft state of the art facility in 2008 using Dutch technology making the farm more energy and labor efficient while also improving the quality of their mushrooms.
