At the end of the 1980s, Ugo Cauda (Sole Administrator of Alba Tartufi), driven by passion and love for his territory, a place of excellence and ancient tradition for the collection of truffles, decided to undertake the search and selection activity of Fresh Truffles, following in the footsteps of the first pioneers who made the Piedmont territory famous throughout the world (Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, today Humanity's Heritage). In 1988, Ugo Cauda, started the first Individual Company and began to market Fresh Truffles, in Piedmont, Liguria and Valle d'Aosta (North Western Area of Italy), by contacting and personally meeting Restaurants and Users of the Gourmet Sector. At the end of 1996, the first target for national commercial penetration was reached. In 1997, the Individual Company was expanded into a Collective Name Company (Snc) and began to relate to Foreign Operators (initially with EU countries and gradually with non-EU countries). At the end of 1998, the "Alba Tartufi" Company had the intuition of wanting to propose and sell its Products also through the Complementary Internet Channel and therefore, on 05 January 1999 it registered the Domain www.albatartufi.com and created a Portal Web E-commerce for Online Sales. In 2003, upon reaching the first 3 corporate objectives (National Market, Foreign Markets and Internet Complementary Channel), the "Alba Tartufi" Company (Joint-Stock Company - Snc) became the "Alba Tartufi" Srl Company (ie, an LTD Company, still operating under the same name.
