KAMPOT PEPPER
Cambodia's Kampot Pepper is regarded as the King of Peppers due to its complex flavours and pungent aroma. For this reason it is highly sought after by European chefs and food connoisseurs. It was considered an essential spice in any respectable restaurant in France during the mid 20th century but faded from the world market due to the actions of the Khmer Rouge regime. Between the sea and the mountains on Cambodia's south eastern coastline, Kampot’s pepper plantations thrive in ideal growing conditions. Rich minerals in the soil, abundant rainfall and sunshine, as well as the farmers’ traditional cultivation methods combine to produce the exceptional Kampot Pepper.
   
Kampot pepper farmers utilise generations of experience growing premium pepper and are still growing pepper without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilisers. Even individual peppercorns are picked by hand to ensure complete control of harvest times as this effects all stages of production especially for the rarer white and red pepper. During the late 19th and first half of the 20th century French colonials exported pepper from Kampot and the region's high-grade product became the most sought after pepper in the world. A standard ingredient in any respected restaurant in France.
