Hooba is a brand-new product produced by Hooba Foods in Darlington, UK. Hooba Foods produce a range of vegan and 50/50 (meat and mushroom) products, including sausage, sausage rolls, mince, burgers and meatballs.

  • Hooba is the brainchild of ‘Mushroom Mike’ – a South African mushroom farmer who moved to Morpeth, Northumberland in 2008 with his English wife. There is nothing Mike Botha doesn’t know about the wonderful world of mushrooms and he gets very excited when talking about the ‘perfect blend’.
  • Hooba Foods has set up a not-for-profit Community Interest Company which has teamed up with the YMCA to run a project working with young people in Newcastle-upon-Tyne to grow mushrooms. The mushroom stalks are used to make Hooba products and the caps are sold by the YMCA to create a revenue stream for the charity. It is hoped that the model can be rolled out across the UK.
  • Did you know, Hooba (or ‘Huba’) actually means ‘mushroom’ in Slovakian!
