Traditions and Innovation are part of the real success of the company: Urbani Tartufi is the first company promoting the versatile use of the truffle, providing several categories of products, giving traditional recipes a new and precious taste.
A relevant way to re-think about this ingredient - one of the most important of the latest foodie trends in the world - is that they are able to turn even the most simple recipes into a unique and special dish, thanks to the truffles' versatile and tasty characteristics. Our knowledge of this product, and the innovation that drives the company, has led to new businesses during the pandemic period, which has spread the awareness of the overall brand.
We have a family history that dates back 170 years and has involved six generations until today.
Urbani Tartufi's family created important subsidiaries abroad and built the culture around truffles, thanks to strong professional connections in the world of fine-dining; we built the Truffle Academy in Italy, the Truffle Lab in the USA, and the first Truffle Museum. Urbani Tartufi's mission is to spread the truffle culture throughout the world, protecting its biodiversity. The strong bond with local territory led the company to create 'Truffleland' in 2017, a project dedicated to the trufflecolture, protecting its biodiversity, through a sustainable chain.
