Partnering with Virgin Australia, Fungimentals collects over 150kg of coffee grounds from the Virgin Sydney Lounge each week to grow 30kg of oyster mushrooms. Over a 12 month period 8,000kg of of coffee grounds can be transformed into up to 16,00kg of mushrooms. What's more is that the mushrooms have 33% more protein making them a nutritious alternative to meat.
Virgin will be incorporating the mushrooms into their business class menus for flights departing Sydney by October 2016.
