Success Story
Monaghan Mushrooms

Machine advice

Sustainable growth needs the right culture - and good logistics

At the mushroom producer Monaghan Mushrooms, nature is setting the pace. When the mushrooms are ripe for harvesting, the corrugated packaging must be available and just-in-time.

Consumers are taking an increasingly critical view of high meat consumption and are turning more and more to vegetarian alternatives. This is leading to rising sales figures at Monaghan as well, which quickly showed potential for optimization in the logistics process.

Optimized logistics process through short transport routes and a company-owned carton erector



  • Due to the increasing sales figures, the desire for an optimized logistics process grew.
  • A process was required that would have a positive impact on the eco-balance and on the budget.  
Aufgabenstellung Analyse


  • The Klingele packaging experts analyzed the weaknesses of the existing packaging and explored alternatives.
  • For a long time, the packaging and shipping process was quite complex: By the end of 2018, the Venlo location received all the trays delivered flat.
  • They were then all stood upright in Venlo and some of them were subsequently transported to Laichingen in Baden-Württemberg.  
Analyse Lösung

Solution development

  • The core element of the new solution is a carton erector, which has been in use in Laichingen since January 2019.
  • It erects the trays, which are then delivered flat from our plant in nearby Grunbach.
  • Single Point Of Contact: Klingele Golfkarton is the contact for several plants in the Klingele Group.
Umsetzung Erfolg


  • Thanks to the new carton erector, the logistics process is now faster and more flexible.
  • Monaghan also saves significant transportation costs.
  • Contact in terms of machine technology, regional presence, sustainable products and efficient customer service.
  • There is also no need to forgo international reach: A collaboration with Monaghan in the target markets of England and Ireland is under discussion through our alliance of Blue Box partners. This unites manufacturers of corrugated cardboard packaging in all major European markets.  

Monaghan Mushrooms is one of the largest mushroom producers in the world. It sells remarkable 1,800 tons of mushrooms per week - and the tendency is growing.


>>Monaghan is as much a family company as Klingele and in our experience the associated corporate culture ensures a higher commitment to long-term high quality and faster decision-making. <<
