Pepper, sugar GI status

KAMPOT pepper and Kampong Speu palm sugar have been recognised as Geographical Indicator (GI) products by the Ministry of Commerce (MoC), it was confirmed Thursday. Lao Reasey, chief of the ministry’s GI bureau at the Intellectual Property Rights Department, said that a ceremony to mark the official recognition of Cambodia’s first two GI products would be held at the end of this month. Producers have reacted well to the announcement. “It is good news for us. It reflects our efforts for more than two years to prepare for GI status. Those efforts have come to fruition now,” Nguon Lay, president of Kampot Pepper Farmers’ Association, said Thursday.
