La Plantation Kampot Pepper

The Cream of the Crop

The Province of Kampot in the Kingdom of Cambodia has for many centuries held the reputation of producing the best pepper in the world by the leading Chefs’ in Paris and the Michelin starred restaurants of France.

Cambodia being a French controlled Colony exported the majority of its pepper production to France with the best from Kampot reserved mainly for the discerning food trade in Paris.

During the Civil war in Cambodia (1970-1975) the now disgraced dictator, Pol Pot, banned trade with France and the pepper plantations were destroyed.

In 2007 these pepper plantations were being re-established within the favored areas of the Kampot region which has the perfect ‘territory’ for growing pepper with beautiful quartz influenced soils and the perfect tropical climate for the ancient domesticated forest plant to flourish.

La Plantation was established in 2013 by a dedicated French couple in the beautiful ‘Hidden Lake’ area of Kampot. The pepper plantations were established and the infrastructure for processing the peppers and several other spices were constructed. La Plantation is now one of the leading and most innovative producers in this famous region.

Kampot in 2010 was recognized by the United Nations as an ‘Appellation of Origin’ which allows all the pepper produced in this this small region as being the only pepper to use KAMPOT in is name. {Similar to ‘Champagne’ and the Champagne Region in France}.

The production of pepper in Kampot is controlled and regulated by the Kampot Pepper Producers Association and it is all grown organically and certified annually by Eco-Cert the leading organic certified in Europe.
