May 2018 – Monaghans Mushrooms clarify business plans for Thakeham
Monaghan’s Mushrooms have issued a statement clarifying that they are in the process of making some changes to the focus of their production at Thakeham, towards organic mushrooms. This will have some impact on production volumes and staff numbers, but Monaghans emphasise that they remain committed to the Thakeham site and that this is demonstrated by further short-term investment plans. Monaghan’s full statement is below. Their reference to works at ‘the front entrance’ refers to reconfiguring the layout of the front entrance/exit of the site to physically prevent HGVs from turning northwards on the B2139; this was part of the original planning commitments relating to the Abingworth development.
