Profile & History

Don Farruco is the trade name of Itzaina y Otros Sociedad Colectiva, headquartered in Los Cerrillos, Canelones, Uruguay. Committed to the promotion of health and sustainable efforts, Don Farruco is Uruguay's largest producer of shiitake mushrooms. 

The company was founded in 2014 by Roberto Itzaina, an entrepreneur with ample management experience in both domestic and multinational organizations. In collaboration with his brother Francisco, he decided to invest on the development of quality natural food products traditionally foreign to Uruguay.

Don Farruco operates out of an agricultural establishment with highly controlled facilities for the production of delicious and nutritive mushrooms, which are rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals, free of gluten and have medicinal properties. The shiitake is cultivated on a substrate composed largely of saw dust and maintained under rigorous conditions at all stages of production, from incubation to fructification. It is then harvested and promptly packaged for sale.
