Product History
The first mushroom findings on the planet date back to 400 million years. The Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks and Romans were aware of several varieties of edible mushrooms and especially appreciated them as delicacies. Historically, mushrooms have been used in the pharmaceutical industry, medicine and perfumery. Mushrooms are low in saturated fats, sodium and calories and rich in vitamins, iron, phosphorus and potassium. Some mushroom varieties are cultivated, while others can only be found growing in nature. Autumn and spring are considered to be the most suitable periods for the experienced mushroom collectors to seek wild mushrooms that grow in the mountains of Greece.

Dirfis

In 2006, two young men, Eleftherios Lahouvaris and Athanasios Mastroyannis, both university graduates in Agriculture but also with great experience in mushroom growing, founded "Dirfis" – a company situated Northern Evia. Being dedicated and passionate lovers of the agricultural mycology sector, they are ‘fiercely’ engaged in the cultivation of pleurotus mushrooms and in the production of products of high gastronomical and bioactive, functional value. They participate in pioneering research projects in cooperation with universities; they constantly make sure they keep up to date with the latest developments in their field. Moreover, they share their knowledge of mushrooms through international congresses and seminars.

What "Dirfis" does, is to collect and dry wild mushrooms found in the Greek forests and launch them to the market. Eleftherios and Athanasios aim at creating new products based on mushrooms and also emphasizing their nutritious and bioactive ingredients.Dirfis has installed its mushroom cultivation unit at a safety distance of 7 km from the substrate production unit to ensure that conditions of hygiene are kept high and that risk of infection during pasteurization and incubation is kept at its lowest possible level.

Dirfis chose its location at the foothills of Mount Dirfis very carefully using stringent environmental criteria. The company’s production unit is surrounded by lush vegetation and is characterized by a terrain that is ideal for the creation of the microclimate mushrooms need in order to grow. The location of the plant is free of any vehicle or industrial pollution and follows to the letter all the specifications necessary in producing wholesome products that are rid of any external polluting factors. One of the most impressive natural phenomena is how rapidly and suddenly mushrooms appear. That phenomenon is directly linked to the evaporation rate of the mycelium’s growing fruit body and osmotic pressure. By applying the appropriate ventilation and by maintaining the cultivation cabin at the right temperature and humidity, the Dirfis team ensures that the evaporation rate of its precious cultivations will remain within required levels.
