In Brief: Pepper prices steady

CAMBODIAN pepper prices have been stable despite drops in other

agriculture commodities like cassava and corn, with prices at between

US$10 and $12 per kilogram, according to Jerome Benezech, CEO of Farm

Link Association in Kampot. “We are buying pepper at almost the same

price as before,” said Benezech. Cambodian pepper is mainly sold to

Vietnam, France and Australia, where demand has fallen slightly due to

the global recession. "The price of pepper worldwide keeps decreasing,”

said Benezech, adding that better-quality Cambodian pepper has fetched

a higher price. Cambodia produces several thousand tonnes of pepper per

year through small scale farming, mostly in Kampong Cham and Kampot

provinces.
