Boscovivo was established in 1982 in Arezzo by the Landucci family. The principal aim of this truffle producer has always been combining innovation with tradition by personally dealing with the selection of ingredients and actively collaborating with some Italian universities to guarantee high quality products.
Boscovivo was the first to introduce different kinds and sizes of truffle on the market and the first in 1986 to study the natural extraction of the truffle aroma in collaboration with the University of Viterbo. Boscovivo has also been the first to promote truffle by teleselling, proposing at the beginning of the 1990s new recipes and products such as thinly sliced truffle, white truffle sauce or truffle-flavoured pecorino cheese. Boscovivo has also been the first in the area to approach the on-line sale of its products.
Since 1998 Alfredo Landucci, one of the most important expert of truffle in Italy, is a consultant for Italian authorities investigating on frauds related to truffle and since 2012 he is chairman of Assotartufi, the national association of truffle producers, as well as being a consultant for the Committee on Agriculture at the Italian Parliament.
Apart from truffle, Boscovivo produces other kinds of food packaged in different sizes to meet the needs of restaurants, caterers, suppliers and families:
The Boscovivo products received several prizes and awards, such as the American Taste Award for white truffle-flavoured olive oil and white truffle sauce and the Dino Villani Award for chicken liver pâté, which is faithful to the original recipe.
