WHO WE ARE

 

OUR VALUES

At The Ho Tieu, we believe in the virtue of the people that we work with. Collaboration is key. Every individual or group we work alongside we consider as partners to constantly develop our knowledge and grow together. We are committed to maintaining our authenticity, sincerity and our delivery of quality products to our customers. 

Minimising waste is critical to us and we will work tirelessly to find new ways to reduce it. Our hands on approach allows us to work very closely with nature and the agricultural aspects of production which keep us grounded. The rich agriculture produce of Vietnam has inspired us to become fully immersed in its culture. We are dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we operate and this includes working closely with the farmers to empower them.

 

OUR GOALS

Our main objective is to preserve and protect the farms and farmer’s livelihoods while tourism is rampantly affecting the lands. The farmers deserve increased access to support, updated and refined methods to maximise the potential of the products with which we aim to help them with. We are also devoted to producing 100% organic products in a sustainable manner from the planting stage to the end product in the near future.

 

PHU QUOC PEPPERS

Phu Quoc island is home to environmental characteristics that form the land which is quintessential for pepper to flourish. The soil, naturally rich in minerals and the perfect tropical climate supply the natural foundation that allows the pepper to prosper. They are the treasure of the island and have been aptly described as the ‘pearls’ of Phu Quoc, Vietnam.

The fruit yielded from the Piper Nigrum vines are processed into three varieties of peppercorn: red peppercorns, white peppercorns and black peppercorns. Despite the fact they originate from the same berry, the peppers are differentiated from each other by flavour notes, aroma and appearance.

 

The Ho Tieu offers what we believe the best peppers to elevate the dining experience of our customers. The various, deep and exuberant flavours of our pepper range can complement almost any imaginable dish. Thanks to the mastery of the scrupulous farmers who have perfected the natural and traditional processes through generations. It is vital to us to ensure that the farmers, the real heroes of this story, are supported and championed.

 

On another note, tourism is rapidly expanding on the island and the farms are decreasing in size. The Ho Tieu is passionate about working closely with the farmer community to ensure they can thrive and preserve their land. Phu Quoc peppers are truly a treasure that we hope the next generations get to enjoy.
