Trade Sales

The English Truffle Company offer fresh English autumn truffles for sale to the trade from September to January. In some years, we may offer English Summer truffles from July. (Retail customers please visit our Buy English black autumn truffles page).

Our trade customers want to source English and local produce: they include leading restaurants and pubs. We also supply wholesalers and food manufacturers from large companies like TruffleHunter to small artisan producers like Honeys of Henley.

We were honoured that our truffles were included in the dinner for the 2020 BAFTA awards at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel. The main course was Thyme-basted Shropshire chicken served with chestnut mushroom barley with a ballotine of Potash Farm walnuts, Dorset truffle creamed parsnips, and roasted beets.

In October 2019, they were part of a dish prepared in the final of the Young National Chef of the Year. Siôn Hughes of The Carden Park Hotel used them in his mushroom arancini with a black truffle mayonnaise starter.

Our truffles also appeared in a Bocuse d’Or prize winning dish with Adam Bennett, head chef at the Michelin-starred Simpsons restaurant.

The Dining Room at TerraVina uses foraged and fresh produce exclusively from Hampshire and Dorset. We were previously unaware of local truffles and were delighted to try Dorset truffles from The English Truffle Company. The quality is magnificent and in the season they make regular appearances on our fine dining menu to customer acclaim. I would recommend them to any restaurant or truffle fan.

Truffle Options

Please contact us for availability and pricing:

Fresh Truffles

Availability: September – January

To ensure you have the freshest possible truffles, we do not hold stock but supply when we next have them. We usually truffle hunt once or twice per week. This means in general, we do not send out truffles on the day that they are ordered. If you require them for a specific date, please order well in advance.

Every truffle sold is fully traceable back to the site where it came from and when it was harvested. Truffles are sent to you with a next day delivery service to ensure maximum freshness. By default, truffles are sent washed, if you require them brushed please let us know.

For trade orders, we have a minimum order quantity of 300 grams. To find out more, including pricing, please contact us. If you order is for less than 300 grams, retail prices apply. Please go to our Buy English Black Autumn Truffles page.

Frozen Truffles

Availability: All year

These are whole or large pieces of autumn truffles. The taste, aroma and texture of frozen truffle does not quite match fresh truffles, but it is the best alternative. It is recommended that frozen truffles are best used for cooking not shaving. They will be frozen when sent out by overnight delivery and may be partially thawed when they are delivered. Uncooked truffle should never be put back into the freezer, but stored in the refrigerator and consumed within 24 hours.

The truffle can be grated or chopped into a pan with butter (or oil) and salt, heated very gently (not frying it) for around 5 minutes. The warmed truffle can then be added to a hot dish, such as pasta or a sauce, or cooled and refrigerated for up to 48 hours.

Manufacturing Grade Truffles

Availability: All year

These are offcuts and small truffles where appearance is not important. They will be used for small, fine shavings or truffle powder as ingredients. They appear in products such as several English truffle oils, a BBQ sauce and English Truffle Potato Crisps. These premium snacks were selected as a finalist for the Great British Food Awards 2022 and launched into national retail in October 2022.
