The Pink Peppercorns (Schinus), was founded as a product for trade in 1992. It was at this time that it was discovered that these trees grew wildly on the whole coastal region of Brazil as part of the Brazilian native vegetation. The state of Espirito Santo is the largest and first state to export the pink pepper throughout the world. Pink Peppercorns have a sweet and mild taste, also very aromatic, not pungent like the regular ripe pepper fruits.
The trees grow in the wild. The fruit is a small red berry of 4-5 mm in diameter growing in clusters of hundreds of berries. The berry carries a pepper-like taste, with a slight flowery aromatic and sweet taste.
Pink Peppercorns are named after its color and shape, not because of the flavor which is totally exotic and different from regular peppercorns, which have a red tone, but a much more intensive pungency. Today, Pink Peppercorns are commonly used in cuisines all around the world, and it has become real trendy in all fine food flavors.
Nowadays, the IBAMA (Brazilian Environment Institution), which is the government’s department that inspects and controls the Pink Peppercorns (schinus) harvest and only allows formal and legal companies to explore and to deal the product. All of this is to confirm that the pink pepper is totally natural and our company is already working with basically all the top quality producers.
In Bongolava, Ankadinondry Sakay’s region, pink peppercorn supplier production
increases each year.
Since 2010, production started at 5 tons. It increased up to 20 tons in 2014. Farmers aim at producing around 30 tons in the year 2018.
Despite this continuous increase in production, pink peppercorn supply struggles to meet demand. The pink peppercorn supplier community still try to find a way to improve their quality.
Out of 10 tons of products, only 6 kg, less than 0.1%, belongs to Grade 1,”
Currently, Europe and Japan figure among the top importers of pink peppercorn from Madagascar. However, with a production of almost 30 tons, producers need higher production volume to meet the needs of 200 tons required. This requires even more effort for the cooperative and pink peppercorn supplier to meet the demands. And especially, to comply with the standards required by the local or international markets.
