Problems of mushrooms growing in Pakistan:- 
Mushroom is high in protein ,richest in folic acid, fat free cholesterol free, sodium free, good source of potassium but in Pakistan it can not become the part of our food as compare the other part of the world.
In Pakistan more than 90% people are not aware about the mushroom as food and its taste and if a few percent people who aware about this magical food can’t find fresh mushrooms any where in market. 
If any mushroom lover want to grow it they have no idea for spawn and its technical know how, if any body get spawn and grow it successfully then they have no any market in Pakistan where it will sale. They will fail to market it, 
No body know and work its value addition products. 
Aims and Objectives:-
So we realize this situation and have the aims to become the bridge between consumers and producers. 1-Our aim to organize mushroom festival is to educate the consumer of mushroom and to promote the awareness about mushroom’s health benefits,
2-Provide the practical technology and easy way to grow mushroom domestic as well commercial growing.
