The Australian truffle industry, which is assisted by the RIRDC New Plant Products Program, is focusing on truffieres for cultivation of Tuber melanosporum (French Black truffle). The industry is united in its goal to bring the unique truffle flavour experience to all consumers, both domestically and internationally and in doing so create many profitable enterprises in regional areas of Australia.

The industry has achieved significant growth in Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia and New South Wales and is looking to achieve further expansion over the next three to five years as truffle plantations mature and production increases.
