Your performance

Black Penja pepper is an aromatic pepper from Cameroon, for general use for lovers of a robust pepper variety. In every respect the pepper does justice to its volcanic breeding ground. Fiery, fragrant and fruity. Grown without pesticides and without fertilizers.

Penja pepper is the first and so far only pepper variety that is professionally grown on African soil. This has only happened since the 1950s, when the pepper was introduced there.

In addition, the white pepper from Penja is the first product on the African continent to be awarded the Indication géographique protégée (IGP) label with European support. This label applies to all (white) pepper classified as such that is grown in the Penja valley, and means that this pepper from Penja is the only one allowed to carry this protected name.

Since the introduction of the pepper plant, pepper cultivation in Cameroon has taken off, and especially in recent years it has been seen how a good product tells its own story. Not only has production increased sharply in recent years (although it is still a 'small' pepper at 300 tons per year), but also the price on the market. More and more farmers are switching from the less profitable cultivation of cocoa and coffee to pepper.

The special thing about the Penja pepper is the result, a particularly tasty pepper according to French gastronomes and chefs, who are very charmed by the pepper from the former French colony.

Why not organic?

In order to be able to supply this organically grown pepper under the organic label, we will have to be certified as a packer/producer of the pepper. We are not. Although we process and store organic products and products from regular cultivation strictly separately, we are not (yet) allowed to use the organic label.
