Morels From the forests to a multi-million dollar business

February 16, 2012

He started out by picking wild mushrooms in the forests of the Okanagan then he began selling his mushrooms directly to restaurants.

Now Gord Weighill’s Kelowna-based company has expanded into a multi-million dollar business.

Mikuni Wild Harvest sells organic produce and specialty food products annually to hundreds of the top restaurants across North America.

The company has benefited from increasing consumer demand for organic food across the continent.

More than 1,500 restaurants across Canada and the U.S. buy produce from Mikuni.

Referring to mushrooms he bought from the company, Chef Jesse Croy of Sunset Bistro at Summerhill Winery says the mushrooms are as organic as possible and contain no chemicals.

The company’s headquarters are located in a Kelowna basement, but they have offices and warehouses in major cities like New York, Lax Vegas and Seattle.
