Kampot pepper takes its name from the Kampot region in southern Cambodia. This region has been world-renowned for producing high-quality pepper for centuries. The tropical climate, combined with the rich volcanic soils and natural irrigation provided by the Kampot River, create ideal conditions for pepper growing.
The farmers of Kampot have inherited traditional pepper-growing techniques handed down from generation to generation. Each stage of production is carried out with care and attention to detail. The pepper plants are carefully tended, and the berries are harvested by hand when they reach optimum ripeness. They are then sorted, fermented and dried naturally, preserving their unique aromas.
