About Us

A former Oil & Gas sector professional and civil servant, Hong Spices founder Lai Poon Piau returned to his family's agricultural roots and opened Hong Spice's Kampot Pepper farm in 2013.

His primary aim was to re-establish sustainable economic agriculture in the Kampot region through local employment, bioresearch, and environmental conservation efforts.

From the original 2,500 pepper vines, the farm has expanded to over 10,000 vines and is well on the way to achieving these goals; providing stable employment for 50 local residents and helping to push the region's pepper industry forward.
