Frontier Co-op Black Peppercorns, Organic, Fair Trade 1 lb.1 lb.
Frontier Co-op bulk organic Fair Trade Certified™ Whole Black Peppercorns can be ground in a peppermill when cooking or at the table to lend satisfying heat and bite to most any dish. One of the world's most popular spices, black peppercorns are actually unripe green fruits (berries) that have been sun-dried after fermenting. These whole organic peppercorns are carefully selected from the world's premier pepper-producing regions to provide consistent size and premium quality. Our black peppercorns are also kosher certified.
Fair Trade Certified* is an award-winning sustainable sourcing model that improves the livelihoods of farming families through fair prices, direct trade and community development. It also supports environmental stewardship and builds resilient, transparent supply chains. Certified by a third party, Frontier Co-op was the first spice company in the U.S. to offer Fair Trade Certified spices into the market.
With Frontier's partner in Kerala, India, our Fair Trade Certified black pepper can be traced to the small-holder farmer. Frontier's projects with these farmers actually expand beyond just the certification with a number of projects that help farmers manage their crops through ongoing climate change, including past funding of a soil, plant and water testing lab, investing in an organic agriculture training program focused on building the soil and biodiversity, and promoting local varieties of pepper that are hardier against flood and drought conditions.
