Steenbergs Organic Fairtrade black pepper was the first spice in the UK to carry the Fair-trade mark. Steenbergs organic Fairtrade pepper contributes directly to the social welfare of pepper farmers in the developing world, however there remains much to do to fight for equality throughout the world and to stop exploitation - so do your little bit by buying some organic Fairtrade black peppercorns, then grind them into your cooking with a clearer conscience.
This is a high quality organic black pepper. It is an organic black pepper (MG1 grade) currently from smallholders in either Kerala in Southern India or from smallholders in Sri Lanka. These black peppercorns are really dark and have a sharp bite that is full of those classic bold, rich and warm flavours characteristic of great black pepper.
