If you like mushrooms, the chances are you’ve tasted a Walsh mushroom or two!
Founded in County Wexford, Ireland by Pat Walsh in 1979, Walsh Mushrooms has been a key supplier of top quality fresh mushrooms to all sectors of the UK market for almost forty years.
Today’s quality is tomorrow’s growth
From its UK headquarters in the Vale of Evesham in Worcestshire, Walsh Mushrooms provides daily cold chain distribution to retailers, food manufacturers and food service customers nationwide. Currently marketing over 500 tonnes of mushrooms per week (10% of the total UK mushroom market), customers include Co-op, ALDI, Pizza Hut and Ginsters to name a few.
Walsh Mushrooms employs 240 people, indirectly supports more than 1,000 other jobs and has a sound environmental policy at the heart of its approach. And, when not supplying mushrooms, the company supports local sports teams and charities.
Walsh Mushrooms and Bailprint
The Bailprint team works with Shaun Webb at Walsh Mushrooms. Shaun started off in the warehouse many years ago including quality control and sales. Nowadays his job is everything labels!
Working from a purpose built secure room, Shaun is a very busy man, looking after the day to day printing, bespoke labelling and finding label suppliers. We’re very proud he had this to say about Bailprint,
‘When a company comes well recommended you know you’re on to a good thing! Bailprint provides a professional service with our label orders and has ‘bailed us out’ with some quick turnarounds. When our customer requires a label change or something new altogether within a tight time schedule, Bailprint has helped us fulfil our customers’ needs and that’s good news for all of us!
‘It’s also the little things that count, like receiving well-packaged labels in clearly marked boxes. It’s good to get reminders on upcoming print runs from the friendly and helpful sales team.’
A fan of fungi… and Bailmail!
After twenty or so years with Walsh Mushrooms, Shaun is still a fan of fungi. Their website features a great section on mushroom recipes and nutritional benefits and Shaun shared these quick and easy serving suggestions with us…
‘Large flat or chestnut mushrooms in a fry up; sliced closed cup mushrooms on a pizza; Portobello’s smothered with a cheese and bacon topping or baby buttons added to a thai style chicken and chilli soup. With the cold weather upon us, they are also a nice addition to a winter stew. You can’t go wrong with any of those dishes and mushrooms are one of your five a day too.’
We’re also delighted to report that Shaun is also a fan of our Bailmail newsletter,
‘The Bailmail newsletter is a particularly nice touch and a welcome read at breaktime. It’s also provided me with a couple of bottles of booze in the prize draw over the years!’
