Offering fresh truffles for sale without stocking them.
Buying fresh truffles to add to your weekly mail out stock sheet is an expensive business and a black art to get order volumes correct unless you have a specific pre-orders from your customers.
Fresh truffles typically lose 3% of their mass daily, while they sit in your fridge awaiting new orders, and what happens to stock left over on Friday? These cannot be truly sold as 'fresh' the week after?! Weight loss, rot and drying out are three examples of the perils that will feast nicely on your bottom line.
