We don’t take the term “black gold,” lightly. With a farm level sourcing network managed in-origin by our pepper experts and two estates in Vietnam and Brazil, we can ensure supply quality and product security from field to factory.

Ingredient Offering

Our world-class pepper processing facilities in Vietnam both use an inline steam sterilization process, the first in the pepper industry, and offer extended grinding capabilities to match all customer specifications.


Whole peppercorns work perfectly when you want to showcase the entire spice. It offers noticeable piece identity in applications such as pickle brines, marinades and vinaigrettes.  


Our cracked pepper is piquant and best when used where you would like to see large chunks of pepper, such as meat coatings and marinades or dressings and sauces. 


This classic spice is “the little black dress” of the culinary world, where it adds heat and intrigue to sauces, dips, breadings, snacks and entrees.

Single Estate

From central Vietnam to the coast of Brazil our two sister estates are the first of their kind in the industry, providing complete traceability back to the block of pepper planted.

Black Pepper

The most traded spice in the world, black pepper is the dried fruit of the pepper plant and is used to flavor a variety of applications. The unripe berries of the pepper plant are picked when turning yellow and immediately dried after harvest with the skin on. As it dries, enzymes in the berries cause the skin to turn black and wrinkly.

White Pepper

A milder form of pepper, with a lightly fermented aroma and taste, white pepper is grown on the same vine as black pepper. However, white pepper differs because it is made from peppercorns that are picked ripe and processed to remove the outer skin, leaving behind a smooth white finish on the berry. White pepper tastes bright and sharp and slightly more herbaceous than black pepper.

Single Estate Pepper

Fuelled by a passion for the kind of consistency and specialization only guaranteed from a single source, we sought the world’s best locations to nurture and grow our single varietals of pepper.
