In the early 2000s, the world pepper prices collapse and the farming of Kampot pepper plants is gradually abandoned by local farmers.
Farmlink is a French-Cambodian company founded in 2006 by expatriates who fell in love with the Kampot region.
FARMLINK’s mission was primary to help the farmers improve the quality of Kampot pepper they once had, before the Khmer Rouge had put a stop to the pepper plantations from 1975 to 1979.
By working hand in hand both locally with farmers and internationally with renowned French Chefs and spice specialists, the local farmers and Farmlink have succeeded to bring back this unique Kampot pepper to life.
Farmlink has worked to promote the Kampot pepper with tourists and restaurants in Cambodia as well as among food enthousiastics and the finest spice shops around the world.
