Myzel Organics is proud to be one of the 2024 recipients of the Desjardins GoodSpark Grants.

Desjardins delivered 150 GoodSpark Grants worth $20,000 each to small businesses across Canada.

Winning businesses were selected for their contribution to their local communities by focusing on innovation, sustainability, or supporting the needs of their neighbours.

Myzel Celebrated for Innovation

Myzel Organics is a functional mushroom farm based in Wainfleet, Ontario. The company focuses on using sustainable energy and cultivation practises to grow 15 species of mushrooms in a re-purposed poultry facility.

The founders started the operation during the pandemic in 2021, and are now shipping mushroom powders around the world.

The $20,000 grant will be used to purchase new equipment to automate production processes.

Desjardins Group Invests in Canadians

The $250 million GoodSpark Fund was launched to improve the well-being of Canadian people and communities.

This commitment reflects Desjardins’ cooperative model and has led to investments in more than 400 projects that are creating social and economic security for Canadians.
