The Urban Mushroom Company

In the UK, 95 million cups of coffee, per day, are consumed and 99% of the coffee beans go to landfill; leading to the production of half a million tonnes of coffee waste each year, along with potent methane gases.

The Urban Mushroom Company Ltd has come up with a solution, not only to tackle the environmental effects of coffee ground waste, but also to ease unemployment in Exeter. With our indoor vertical farm in Princesshay, we produce and sell ready-to-fruit mushroom blocks using coffee waste from local cafes. In collaboration with our business partners, we are working to provide volunteering experience, workshops, and employment opportunities for local disadvantaged individuals.
