Penja White Peppercorns


Poivre Blanc De Penja

Penja white pepper is picked at optimum maturity, washed free of its pulp, and then sun-dried in the province of Moungo in Cameroon. All stages of production (harvesting, retting, washing, drying, sorting) are entirely manual and mainly carried out by the expert hands of the women of the village. Penja pepper now enjoys a worldwide recognized gastronomic success. In 2014, it became the first Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) of the African continent.  Its taste is powerful, with a woody aroma, and carnal notes. This pepper is the fruit of a giant liana, the Piper nigrum. It grows on a tree with rough and cracked bark that facilitates its ascent. Its pollination is done by the rain and the rich and fertile lands of Cameroon give Penja pepper an aroma and concentration of exceptional essential oils.

Usage: The volcanic and fertile lands of Penja give Penja white pepper fresh aromas of menthol and camphor. Crushed, it has a great length in the mouth.
It's animal notes are perfect with a game dish, red meat, also try it with oysters.
you can also try pepper on desserts ... Try it with a pear pie or strawberry from the garden with freshly squeezed lime juice. Seared pineapple with vanilla ice cream and a few pinches of Penja pepper.

For the shipping fresh and frozen goods we use high quality mixed recyclable insulated packaging to keep your products perfect through the courier network.

To keep frozen goods at the correct temperature we use a safe alternative to dry ice.  These gel packs freeze to a temperature of -45° and stay frozen for an extended period of time. Completely food safe and fully recyclable/reusable.


The vast majority of shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this.  In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in your freezer.  Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.

All frozen products arrive in extremely high quality, fully insulated packaging.


All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper.  This is suitable for storing in your fridge.  If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac.  Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
