Truffles are edible fruits of fungi that grow in association with tree roots. They are a fascinating and delicious luxury food, steeped in history. The truffle industry in New Zealand is about 20 years old.
Kings Truffles offer a complete and integrated package of services; consultancy services in establishing and managing your own truffiere; truffle-infected seedlings for sale; access to trained truffle dogs to sniff the truffle out; a channel to market your truffles; and if you have a taste for luxury food, an opportunity to buy fresh Perigord black truffle in the winter months of New Zealand.
Based near Christchurch, but providing services nationwide, we invite you to step out on an exciting and rewarding journey by becoming involved with an industry that has a great future potential.
Following the permanent move by the General Manager of Southern Cross Truffles (Jax Lee) to a property on Kings Road near Waipara, which is intended to become the centre of our whole truffle business operations, we have decided to change the name of the business to Kings Truffles.
We are proud to call Waipara home and believe the aristocratic nature of our product is encapsulated in this name. We will now have a name that will differentiate ourselves as we prepare to take steps to enable us to export our product around the world.
