South Mill Champs

Company History

We’ve Spent 90 Years Growing

South Mill Champs began four generations ago in 1932 when Louie Pia, an Italian immigrant, began operating a small mushroom farm in southeastern Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Since then, we have continued to expand and grow in the mushroom industry ⁠— acquiring new farms, building new facilities equipped with the latest technology, and extending our distribution network ⁠— in an effort to become one of the largest, most trusted mushroom growers in North America.

Today, South Mill Champs proudly supplies over 140 million pounds of fresh, frozen, and minimally processed mushrooms throughout North America. We continue to offer unparalleled service to regional retail, foodservice, wholesale and processing customers providing high quality mushrooms quickly and efficiently.

Our mission is to nourish the planet sustainably by providing the North American market with responsibly grown, great tasting, good-for-you mushrooms.

Looking To

South Mill is constantly adapting to become more than just a leading supplier of high-quality fresh mushrooms and mushroom products. Our expanding logistics services, cold and frozen storage services, freezing and processing offerings, and our ever-growing portfolio of food products provide our customers with a wide variety of options.
