Turning the raw material into spices
The berries grow in bunches and turn pink as they ripen. The bunches are then harvested and dried and the shells removed by hand. Our local teams have trained the producers from partner networks in good hygiene practices.
When they arrive in our factory, strict checks are carried out on the pink peppercorn.
