Discover the world of truffels

Company History

Marcel Plantin started Maison Plantin in the heart of Provence in 1930. Since it started, this family business established itself as the main supplier of truffles to the grand tables of France. In 1986, Hervé Poron took over Maison Plantin and embarked upon a programme of strong growth for the company. In particular, it now exports its know-how to other countries. Just as passionate about truffle growing and the world of truffles in general, Christopher Poron, his son, and Nicolas Rouhier, today continue his work. From the United States to Japan, not forgetting the United Arab Emirates and Singapore, from the tables of the Elysée to those of the greatest French chefs, such as Joël Robuchon, Benoît Violier and Yannick Alleno, they all use Maison Plantin to supply them with truffles and woodland mushrooms.

The essentials from 'la Maison'

Of all fresh truffles, the black truffle, tuber melanosporum in Latin: this famous truffle, also known as the "black diamond of cuisine" has, for a very long time, been the one most valued by the gastronomic world. Today, it is the foundation of the reputation enjoyed by Maison Plantin. The combination of a delicate perfume and crisp texture gives it an exceptional flavour and character.

Flagship product in the range of preserved truffles, the First Boiling Black Truffle, when properly cooked, gives off a perfume, almost as powerful as that of a fresh truffle and will delight the palate of even the most discerning.

Truffle expert since 1930

deally located in the heart of the truffle producing region close to the main truffle markets and growers, since it started in business, Maison Plantin has positioned itself as one of the main players in selecting the best truffles in France. The best truffles in Vaucluse, particularly Richerenches and Carpentras truffles are selected by Maison Plantin.

To be able to offer its high-class restaurant customers and the processing industry an even wider choice of truffles throughout the year, Maison Plantin now works in partnership with producers in Spain and Australia, for example. Handling twenty to thirty tonnes of fresh truffles a year, focussing on the most sought-after varieties, it always chooses the best tuber melanosporum truffles from around the world. Partner Contact:
