This soil is rich in minerals due to the presence of volcanic soils, that gives the Penja black pepper her unique and pure taste.

The African Intellectual Property Rights Organization (OAPI) has granted the Penja pepper a geographical indication (GI) which protects its origin, quality or association.

It is not clear how the pepper was discovered, but as we know, pepper cultivation began in the 1950’s in Cameroon’s Penja valley.
Plantations have developed since that time in a very favorable climatic environment. This contributes to the local economy and social fabric (schools, work conditions etc.)

Thanks to a naturally rich and balanced volcanic soil which creates flavors and aromas that are exceptional.
Green: harvested before the fruit ripens – fresh bouquet and lemony
Black: harvested after it has ripened and dried on the branch – fresh powerful and spicy
White: picked at the optimal peak of maturity, washed, shelled, it reveals all its aroma’s

All production steps (harvesting, sorting etc.) are done entirely by hand and mainly by the village women.

This Penja pepper is given a protected geographical indication label by the African agricultural organization. The penja pepper is one of the three African commodities, including Oku honey from Cameroon and Ziama Macenta coffee from Guinea, to be given such a label, which prohibits the product’s name from being used by producers outside of its original region.
