Supporting the livelihood of our local farmers

Pepper farms are usually found at hillsides. The slopes allow natural water to flow from top to bottom, avoiding water catchment or ponding that will damage the root of the vines.

About us

Carus Pepper Sdn. Bhd was incorporated in December 2020 by a group
of experienced industry players. We specialise in the grading purchasing, processing, development and marketing of Sarawak Pepper
products.

A young company with big dreams, we strive to improve the livelihood
of the pepper farmers through our close collaboration with the State
Farmers’ Organisation.

Our tagline

Supporting the livelihood of our local farmers prepares us to be a better, stronger company. We are committed to serve the community and to grow the pepper industry into a more sustainable business.

OUR OBJECTIVE

We start by assisting smallholders and farmers by buying farm-level processed pepper at a higher price.

This will automatically kick-start their eagerness to plant more peppervines.

The idea of high- grade peppercorns fetching better prices will significantly motivate farmers to work efficiently, engage in Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and also strive to produce greater output per vine, year by year.

Sustainability is what we want to promote for the long-term benefit of our pepper farmers.

Treasuring Sarawak’s very own valuable commodity is what we are proud of.
