Famine Relief – Social Purchasing in Action!

Famine in Horn of Africa
A simple act like changing your brand of pepper can help relieve the suffering caused by the worst famine in 40 years in the Horn of Africa.

One person is likely dying of hunger every 48 seconds in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia.

Best Pepper Ever is a social purpose brand of the best pepper in the world.

We are supporting UNICEF Canada by providing 65% of all proceeds from Kampot Pepper sales to provide nutrition and health for children.

The purchase of a 100 gram pouch of Kampot Pepper can provide 10 children with 132 packets of life-saving, peanut-based food supplements to help a child suffering from malnutrition gain up to two pounds .

Good nutrition is the bedrock of child survival and development. Learn more…


The Give Back Market is unique e-commerce/fulfillment platform that will be launched later this year. It is being created to enable social enterprises, social purpose businesses and makers to connect with socially responsible consumers, businesses and organizations committed to Building Back Better by creating community value through social purchasing.

The main focus of the platform is to help alleviate food insecurity and provide support for other worthwhile causes. Purchases of Fair Trade Kampot Pepper plays an integral role in rebuilding an industry virtually destroyed during the Cambodian Genocide.

There’s pepper and then there’s Cambodia’s Kampot pepper. You might think that the stuff that comes out of shakers and grinders is pretty much the same wherever you go, but to increasing numbers of chefs, restaurateurs and foodies, ordinary pepper bears as much resemblance to Kampot pepper as vin de table does to fine Bordeaux.

To all pepper lovers: Once you try Kampot Pepper no other pepper will do. Make Kampot Pepper – the best pepper in the world –  your tabletop choice can have impact!

Social Purpose Platform coming Summer 2022.

Please come back this summer when we officially launch to see the rest of our starting lineup .

They will include the following makers/creators:

Spirit Works creates authentic Indigenous artworks, jewelery and custom art installations.

Although much of our work is focused on alleviating food insecurity one thing is certain and that is that what we really want is to end the need for Food Banks and that can only be done through training, education and skills development leading to meaningful, living wage employment. We have recently revived the Digital Technology & Education Society focusing on creating opportunities for the unemployed and under employed. Pleases visit us.

A final note: There will be many more markers, growers and creators that will become part of our community as we grow. For example, this Social Purpose portal is a first step in the long-term vision for creating a community-based, Fair Trade distribution system not just for pepper growers and salt producers in Cambodia but for small organic spice growers around the globe. The $24Billion global spice market is ripe for a ‘Disruption for Good’ play. Our long term goal is to secure 2% of that market and that would fund over one billion meals a year. That is our social purpose.
