Applications can be requested at (408) 432-7210, or e-mail at Bart@mushroomcouncil.org or Cheryl@mushroomcouncil.org, according to the release.

The council includes U.S. producers and an importer. U.S. members account for three production territories. Region 1 covers the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and all states except Pennsylvania. Region 2 is Pennsylvania and Region 3 is California.

The council, in place since 1993, evaluates mushroom marketing and research initiatives, according to the release.
