Kampot Pepper is known as the best pepper in the world. It hold the prestigious Protected Geographical Indication certification putting it on the same footing as other appellations of origin like Champagne, Cognac, Darjeeling Tea.
Working with a collective of over 400 small pepper farmers we are building a community-based, Fair Trade distribution system to help these farmers rebuild their ancient farming system that was virtually destroyed during the Cambodian Genocide.
Joseph MacLean while working on a number of social enterprise projects in Cambodia came across the ‘Best Pepper Ever’ and decided to help create a social purpose brand under that name. “The idea is really quite simple, the community partner becomes the retailer and receives the retail portion (35%) of all sales. During COVID that amount has been increased to 50%. So purchasing the ‘Best Pepper Ever’ one is not only helping sustainable agricultural practices in Cambodia but helping to alleviate food insecurity here at home.
