A family-owned pepper and spice organic farm in Cambodia
Like any agricultural project, our project is built with long term objectives. It has been incepted on Fair Trade principles, from our partners to our employees to benefit our rural community. We work with international importers and distributors who share our values. Together, we are committed to offering the freshest spices at the fairest price, for the producer and the consumer.
Within La Plantation, we built a production plant which allows us to process and package the spices immediately after their harvest. This freshness is an essential guarantee of the quality of the spices we produce.
The production site provides a controlled environment with trained teams, ensuring compliance with international standards in terms of hygiene and food safety. The spices are tested by international laboratories before being distributed.
Quality is the foundation of our project. Processing and packaging of our spices, immediately after their harvest, guarantee their freshness and the preservation of their aromas. La Plantation is proud to highlight the expertise of rural communities in Cambodia, who produce high quality spices, and to promote them on the international market.
The history of Kampot Pepper is intimately linked to that of Cambodia and the Kampot region. The first plantations were established in the Kampot region by Chinese from Hainan, from the 13th century. Today, cultivation, harvesting and selection are still done by hand to preserve the unique taste of the best pepper in the world.
In collaboration with the Kampot Pepper Promotion Association, we are working to improve traceability and eliminate counterfeit Kampot Pepper at the source. We inform and train our distributors and importers on the challenges of the sector.
La Plantation develops a strong social and societal responsibility in the Kampot region
We offer good working conditions to our employees and train them to develop their skills. We help independent farmers improve their quality of life.
Building futures also means making our children grow up by providing them with a good quality education
Les écoles de la Plantation’s 1st Mission is to offer a great primary education to the children from our village.
However, our End Goal is to send them to a successful secondary education, through high school and university, towards a sustainable profession.
Maison Boutarin, are passionate farmers, in the Drôme in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, who transform the products of the earth into exceptional gourmet products with an inimitable taste!
Fanny and her husband Stéphane Boutarin, a farmer and garlic producer, have put their know-how and skills at the service of the same desire: to promote garlic and make people discover its many flavours!
It is by combining the tradition of agricultural production of PGI white garlic from the Drôme and innovation through the transformation of this condiment into black garlic that they are realizing this goal.
Black garlic is made from a PGI white garlic from Drôme, thanks to a process developed by Fanny. Maison Boutarin black garlic has a delicate taste with aromas of candied fruit, undergrowth and balsamic vinegar and a melting texture. But to surprise the taste buds, Maison Boutarin also produces and offers other surprising varieties of garlic!
Stéphane produces PGI white garlic from Drôme, which has a slightly milder taste. Elephant garlic allows to diversify the range of flavours. This garlic has large cloves and a delicate taste close to leek. A multitude of flavours to surprise your taste buds!
The Maison Boutarin accompanies its products to the plate with numerous culinary inspirations available on its website.
The Maison Boutarin are products made in France, the elaboration of healthy and tasty products recommended by French Chefs and delicatessen shops, the sharing of a common passion and respect for the earth.
It is at the beginning of the 19th century that the story of A L'OLIVIER starts, in the heart of Paris, in the Marais district. Mr Popelin, then pharmacist, opens a shop dedicated to the olive oils of Provence. With a reputation for quality and award-winning by two medals at the universal exhibition of 1867 and 1889, the House extended its know-how to other varieties of oils to become the specialist of quality oils. Today the company operates two oil mills. One, installed in Grasse, produces conventional and organic olive oil from a local raw material. The other, located in Poitou, makes in a traditional way gourmet oils from walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, and rapeseed... Oils produced in our two mills are offered under A L'Olivier brand. Others olive oild, many in PDO, but not only, are selected from other producers and oil mills. Only the best oils chosen by our team of expert tasters are offered under A L'Olivier. In order to complete its selection of quality oils A L'Olivier began 25 years ago to make fresh plant infused olive oils . Obtained according to an original process of dynamic maceration, these oils distinguish themselves by intensity and freshness of their flavor.
Real cooking aids, they ideally complement olive and seed oils in the kitchen. These herbal oils are developed in our workshops on the borders of Provence and County of Nice : an ideal location for our supplies of fresh plants, herbs and citrus. A L’Olivier also means a nice assortment of traditional vinegars, balsamic vinegar of Modena PGI, fruit pulp vinegars. In this latest range we invite you to discover without delay our three new flavors : Zucchini & Mint, Beetroot & Thyme and Wild Peach.
With so many great ingredients, oils and Vinegars, our “nozes” couldn't refrain from inventing exquisite salad dressings. They wanted them exotic, fresh and tasty.
Finally, A L’Olivier has involved in a commitment towards more organic products whenever raw materials are available. One will have the opportunity to discover our Bio Gourmet range at the show. On the occasion Gourmet Selection 2019, A L'Olivier had again innovated through the development of a range of infused olive oils for desserts, consisting of three recipes. In 2020, we will show brand new exquisite and vibrant products … don’t miss them. Come and taste hem, we will be happy to welcome you.
