About Tartufi Jimmy
The Truffle hunt was originally done with pigs. "Jimmy" was the name of the pig with which Gino, the father of the founder (Giovannino), went hunting for truffles every morning. When Giovannino started his truffle business, he called the company "Tartufi Jimmy". In 1980 he started developing a product line that reflects the authenticity of simple ingredients in combination with the precious truffle. Buspro is proud to be able to import these craft products to the Netherlands. From truffle butter to truffle oil. The head office is in Pietralunga. The Tiber Valley in Umbria is attractively situated among vineyards, olive groves and oak forests. Giovannino is driven by a passion that is passed on from generation to generation.
