Earth Day Initiative
When your family’s livelihood comes directly from the Earth, it’s important to make sure it’s there for future generations.
That philosophy has been at the heart of Sabatino Tartufi from the very beginning. We have been blessed with lands of unnatural beauty and bounty, but we are always taking steps to make sure we can continue sharing the fruits of our estates with the world.
Beginning in 2021, Sabatino is starting an initiative to help further introduce our customers with the land where our truffles are grown.
With each new order placed on SabatinoTruffles.com, we will plant a new tree in one of our truffieres, the truffle orchards where we harvest our Black Winter and Summer truffles season after season.
“While Sabatino Truffles is proud of its 100-plus year history, we are also proud of our ability to innovate and adapt quickly, which has helped us become the global leader in the truffle industry.”
FEDERICO BALESTRA, CEO
Besides planting new trees on an ongoing basis,
Sabatino has focused on reducing and eliminating excess waste throughout our entire supply chain including within our facilities both in Montecastrilli, Italy and West Haven, CT. We are proud to operate both facilities with zero waste in our fresh truffle operations. Any remaining fresh truffles are frozen and preserved for future use.
We are committed to removing all non-renewable or non-recyclable packaging from our brand and products by 2024. This includes removing all use of styrofoam/polystyrene in our packages by 2024.
Reduce Carbon Footprint
One of the biggest steps we have taken over the last few decades was the choice to establish a manufacturing and distribution facility in the United States. This has helped us reduce our carbon footprint by reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in our supply chain. With a physical footprint in the U.S. we are able to manufacture and ship more of our products locally without the use of excessive shipping.
Adapting and Re-Evaluating
We aim to be continuously evaluating new opportunities and leveraging developing technology to become a greener, more environmentally-conscious company.
