LIFE IN THE FOREST
Exploring fungi on the planet
Many mushrooms species are used in Chinese traditional medicine to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, prevent heart disease, boost the immune system, fight cancer, viral infections and Alzheimer's.
Delicious and Nutritious
Mushrooms are rich sources of vitamins and minerals we need in our daily lives and have amazing textures and flavours to spice up your cooking.
Planetary Neural Network
Mushroom mycelium enables plants and trees to exchange nutrients and communicate through nature's neural network helping each other in a myriad of ways.
Clean the Planet
Cultivating mushrooms is a earth friendly colonising process using very little water and resources. Through bioremediation techniques mushrooms can mop up hydrocarbons such as petrochemicals, concentrate heavy metals and even digest some plastics.
Mushrooms can create valuable resources replacing leather and bricks. They can be used for insulation panels, packaging and evenbuilding materials.
Mushrooms are a
highly productive nutritious substitute
for meat and can replace animal leather.
GRAMCO is a full range specialist wholesaler of mushrooms and mushroom products. We carry the healthiest range of common mushrooms as well as exotics.
Mushrooms are an important part of the planetary ecosystem and we want
more people to know that. We collaborate with experts and partners in the field to find ways we can live cleaner and healthier.
We started back in 1994, when Wes subleased a store in the West Melbourne Markets with only $500 to start his new business. Wes was passionate about mushrooms and being an ex-retailer he knew that there were gaps in the mushroom market and a demand for more variety.
Gramco currently operates in the Melbourne Markets, and supplies small supermarkets, independent retailers, and hospitality providores throughout Victoria with a complete range of Australia's best white and brown Agaricus, imported and locally grown exotic mushrooms and wild mushrooms.
Gramco and its industry partners deliver tasty specialty mushrooms to your table using a clean, natural process, combining agricultural waste, technical expertise and a little water. Exotic mushrooms are a delicious protein substitute and come with medicinal properties that tackle most of the rampaging first world diseases.
We are expanding vertically in collaboration with partner Jim Fuller to establish a new farm. The farm will grow morel mushrooms and some exotic fungi products, including a trial to grow a tropical mushroom which produces a vegetarian collagen. Watch this space.
We are excited to share with you how we are making the world healthier and cleaner with mushrooms.
