Kampot pepper is the berry of the piper nigrum, a tropical vine that grows in Cambodia. It is cultivated in an ecological and sustainable way by small producers in the province of Kampot, located in the South of Cambodia, as well as in the province of Kep.

Cultivated without fertilizers or pesticides, Kampot pepper is a product of responsible agriculture
