Kampot pepper demand dips

The Phnom Penh Post reported on 15 July 2013 that the demand for Kampot pepper dips

“Sales of Cambodia’s World Trade Organization-certified pepper from Kampot province fell to 21 tonnes at the end of this year’s harvest season, a slight decline from 22 tonnes after the end of last year’s season.

“Nguon Lay, president of the Kampot Pepper Association, said fast-changing weather, not demand, led to the smaller harvest of crops that qualified for the WTO’s Geographical Indication (GI) status.

“With unique soil and ideal weather conditions for growing pepper, farmers in six districts of Kampot province can produce black, red and white pepper.”
