Batsoyombo (29), a young entrepreneur who has been involved in small scale agricultural business has always been concerned with the food safety in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. As most gross products and greens are imported from China, Ulaanbaatar citizens lack nutritious fresh vegies and usually buy poor quality vegetables throughout the year. Started from the last year, his company started growing Oyster mushrooms and has already been supplying the local market with fresh and organic mushrooms.
Located at the suburban area of Ulaanbaatar city, Batsoyombo has been growing apple trees and other fruit trees and seasonal vegetables at his garden for the last 4 years, however, with extreme climate condition and freezing winter, it was almost impossible to harvest stable yield in Mongolia. After all of those hard works and trials, he started growing vegetable that less sensitive to harsh climate condition, a mushrooms. Inside the winter green house, he has turned the basement floor of 270 square meters in to compost preparing area and growing rooms, where he is able to yield 5-10kg mushrooms daily.
With continually growing demand from retail customers, the company has decided to increase the capacity to 25kg per day by adding 3 more growing rooms and to hire additional 1 logistic worker with a small delivery truck.
In order to reach this goal, Batsoyombo seeks to borrow MNT 36 million and become one of the pioneers in Mushroom business in the country.
