The situation in East Africa is dire. Millions are at risk of starvation. Half are children! They need our help. During this crisis 50% of all proceeds from Kampot Pepper sales will be donated to Aid Agencies working to help alleviate the suffering.


Soaring food prices driven by the war in Ukraine, persistent drought due to climate change in some countries, at times combined with conflict, and the ongoing economic impact of COVID-19 continue to drive up children’s food and nutrition insecurity worldwide, resulting in catastrophic levels of severe malnutrition in children under 5 Source: UNICEF

The Give Back Market is a unique e-commerce/fulfillment platform created to help smallholder organic farmers and alleviate food insecurity through the promotion of regenerative agriculture. According to a recent white paper from the Rodale Institute, global implementation of regenerative practices could sequester more than 100 percent of human-related carbon emissions.

End Hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

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.

Addressing Poverty & Hunger through the deployment of market systems for regenerative agriculture is also a powerful climate action tool.

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 $24 Billion 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 direct hundreds of millions towards ending hunger and poverty. That is our social purpose.
