Truffle Kings

Canadian-Italian entrepreneur Marco Tallarico launches an online fine foods grocery store called Truffle Kings.

The marketplace seeks to bring the best of Italy to Canada through a collection of olive oils, vinegars, truffle-infused foods and fresh truffles.

Inspired by his summers spent in Sicily and Calabria, Tallarico decided to bring Italian culture and quality home to Canada by partnering with family-run southern Italian brands to combat misconceptions that the olive oil industry in the region is fraudulent.

“Truffle Kings aims to educate consumers on the true essence of Italian fine foods,” said Marco Tallarico, the founder. “The brand is a tribute to the long-established family companies that have played a significant role in shaping Italian culture for centuries.”


Through Truffle Kings, consumers and businesses can purchase products from five regions in Italy. Fresh truffle subscriptions and truffle-infused products like pearls, dust, vinegars and crips are made by Geofoods from the Umbria region. Vinegars are from Malpighi, one of Italy’s oldest Vinegar houses based in Modena. Olive oils from Marina Palusci and Fratelli Pugliese come from Abruzzo and Calabria, respectively, while coffee subscriptions are in partnership with Lavazza.
