Black Pepper from the Island of Borneo

Sarawak pepper, from the Piper nigrum species, is cultivated in the northern part of the island of Borneo, more precisely in the Malaysian part, in the heart of the province of Sarawak. The pepper plants are located in the rainforest where the famous orangutans of Borneo live. Sarawak pepper benefits from a protected geographical indication. The harvest extends from April to September with a peak in May and June.

M. Bajot, retired naval commissioner, wrote in 1825 in the "Annales maritimes et coloniales" that the Chinese introduced pepper cultivation on the island of Borneo at the end of the 18th century. The trade between Borneo and China, through the port of Amoy, was very important at that time. The Chinese imported pepper, camphor, tortoiseshell, cloves, precious woods, etc. M. Bajot also writes: "The English were long accustomed to bring to Borneo fabrics of good quality but small size: they took, in return, pepper and gold powder".

Uses of Sarawak Pepper

Sarawak pepper was introduced to Borneo by the Chinese according to the writings of Louis-Marie Bajot to develop the local economy of this region. But it was the English, with James Brooke of the Borneo Company, who stabilized the local economy to intensify the production of this exceptional pepper.

Today, the Sarawak region remains the 6th largest producer of pepper in the world.

This pepper is used in multiple ways around the world, such as infused in tea to benefit from its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties facilitating digestion or as essential oil in the bath to purify the skin.
