Why become involved in the truffle industry?

Deciding to become a Truffière should not be a decision taken lightly. A long term commitment is required as it can take at least 10 years for infected trees to begin to produce truffles. However with a well-managed Truffière following careful maintenance guidelines, the financial rewards can be great.

Any Périgord black truffle that is produced for sale in New Zealand is certain to be bought by a local restaurant – that is if a local restaurant can secure supply before the Truffière is approached by a European restaurant. Because New Zealand can supply the Northern Hemisphere in its off-season, and as awareness of this market’s quality truffles grows in Europe, demand will continue to be high.
