Pepper in Cambodia has a long history: the cultivation of Campotian pepper has been reliably known since the 13th century, when the Chinese researcher Cheu Ta Kouan described the production of pepper.

French colonists immediately appreciated the special taste of Campotian pepper and from the end of the 19th century began to actively develop pepper production in the south of Cambodia.

In the 50s of the last century, production was at its peak - up to 8 thousand tons per year.

For comparison, today the production of Campotian pepper is only 100 tons per year.

In 1975, the Khmer Rouge regime came to power in Cambodia. All lands were nationalized, pepper plantations destroyed. Until 1998, the country lived in a civil war, pepper production almost ceased.

Elections in 1998 brought the country relative stability, a gradual restoration of farms began. Over the past 20 years, the amount of pepper grown was insignificant, almost the entire crop was sold in Europe, especially in France.

Today, thanks to private investment, the production of Kampot pepper is gradually reviving. Foreign companies, including Farmex, are investing in local farmers and creating new plantations.
