Highline Mushrooms, the world's largest organic mushroom grower, has rolled out a new line of Organic Mushrooms Medleys.

Based in Leamington, Ontario, Highline was acquired by multinational fresh produce grower and supplier, Fyffes plc, from private equity firm Peak Rock Capital €98 million (US$111.4 million) in April 2016.

Dublin, Ireland-based Fyffes, with primary operations in bananas, was acquired by Japan conglomerate Sumitomo Corp. in February.

Highline, also Canada's largest mushroom company, markets over 60 million pounds of mushrooms annually and maintains four growing facilities and a distribution facility in Montreal.
