Supporting the farmers
We work hand in hand on a daily basis with Cambodian farmers to help them reach financial sustainability through increasing production and the direct promotion of their high quality products.
Major companies are recently investing widely in Cambodia trying to provoke a switch from local family farms to large scale pepper production and mechanical pepper processing.
At FARMLINK, we believe there is a sustainable way to protect the small local farms by introducing their high quality products to discerning international markets. Family farms still cultivate utilizing manual and organic techniques, respecting the natural environment and the quality of their vines. It is essential for FARMLINK to guarantee they receive a fair and equitable income in order to perpetuate their amazing farming skills, and in doing so bringing out the best in their pepper vines.
FARMLINK enjoys a partneship with over 120 local farmers in Kampot. All those farmers have small plantations locally referred to as ‘pepper gardens’. They work as a community, all helping one another during the planting and harvesting seasons. FARMLINK is committed to this farming model, aiming to bring more jobs and prosperity to the region as whole. FARMLINK itself now has 40 full-time employees, dedicated to the collection, refining, sorting and grading of their KADODĒ Kampot Pepper.
