I am looking at investing in truffles.  The company I am looking at is a science and technology company.  You can invest from £33,000 and you invest in the trees which are husbanded and grown in a sort of hydroponic environment then start producing truffles anywhere from year 3 to year 12.  You sell after 15 years to avoid the French tax system and reap not only an ROI of 545% but also that the land the trees are planted on will have gone up in value. Are there any fellow investors on this forum?

no actually thank you for asking.  I am a big fan of truffles personally and I think it's a genuinely interesting investment opportunity and certainly more lucrative than many schemes.

I have just looked this up, looks interesting as you say.  The fact that they are Perigord truffles from France makes it no problem to sell as they are the most demanded in the world and also the increasing demand from emerging markets of China, Middle East, Russia etc makes It sustainable

yes I read that too it'll help increase truffle production but not in a lab

I currently own trees in the Perigord.  We were lucky enough to have invested many years ago.  Hope not too many people do though as we have done very well so far

it's good to diversify but we believe that all our investments should be sustainable yes we do want to earn money from them but we want to give something back to the environment also

I, like you from what I can gather, am a huge fan of truffles and the fact that someone else pointed out that they are Perigod truffles therefore authentic and the right market makes it even better plus the fact that this is sustainable investing makes it even more tempting.

I love this too and just the right level of investment I am looking at.  Am seriously thinking of this.  The sustainability aspect really sells it to me too.

So glad this discussion has opened up again I cannot recommend it more honestly it is a fantastic investment and as sustainability becomes more and more of an important issue, I really think we have to look at this when we invest.
