The Founder's Story

Nicholas Tôn, the passionate founder of Rich Mushrooms, embarked on his journey into the world of mushrooms when he purchased a Shiitake Mushroom grow kit from Mushroom King Farm. Enthralled by the art of growing mushrooms, he delved into learning everything he could about these fascinating fungi. As he discovered the incredible health benefits mushrooms offer, Nicholas felt compelled to share their potential with the world.

At the core of Rich Mushrooms when we ask ourselves "why" we do it, what drives the company's mission: to promote health and wellness through innovative, plant-based foods so that people can live their lives to the fullest. By focusing on the exceptional nutritional benefits of mushrooms and being vegetarian-friendly. Rich Mushrooms aims to create a positive and lasting impact on the lives of its customers.

His decision to make nutritious mushrooms accessible to everyone became a natural extension of his commitment to supporting the well-being of others.
