Since 1990 the NZ TA has helped promote, foster, encourage, aid and develop truffle growing in New Zealand.
The Association publishes regular newsletters, highlights the latest research and grower experiences, hosts an annual truffle conference, and disseminates relevant information to our members. Regional groups are being established to further support New Zealand truffle growers.
The Association owes much to Dr Ian Hall ONZM who pioneered truffle growing in the southern hemisphere. Ian Hall was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2019 New Year’s honours list for his contribution to the truffle industry, mycology and agribusiness.
