PLANTIN - THE ART OF THE TRUFFLE SINCE 1930
PLANTIN - currently on the shop
Fresh truffles are at the heart of our business
Since 1930, we have used our expertise with fresh truffles in service to our customers.
Black truffle, summer truffle, Burgundy truffle, and Alba white truffle: each day, the finest varieties of fresh truffles pass through the expert hands of our Truffle Masters.
During truffle season, Eric and Ella receive, sort, and prepare the fresh truffles for our business and individual customers. It’s this rigorous selection process that has earned Plantin its sterling reputation over its nearly 100 years in business.
PLANTIN: expertise passed down from generation to generation
It was in 1930, in the heart of Provence, that Marcel Plantin founded the company bearing his family name. The family-owned company quickly became known for its expertise and became the largest supplier of truffles to the great restaurants of France.
In 1986, Plantin began exporting to other countries as Hervé Poron took the helm of the company. Today, Plantin is managed by Hervé’s son Christopher Poron and his friend Nicolas Rouhier. Plantin continues to grow with both business and individual customers, both in France and internationally.
