Phnom Penh – The European Union has officially recognized Cambodia’s Kampong Speu palm sugar as a protected product, the second such product from Cambodia to be granted the status.

In a letter from the European Commission on April 2, the body announced Kampong Speu sugar would join Kampot pepper in holding protected geographical indications (GI) status.

The letter showed Swiss and Belgian companies raised opposition to the motion, which was initiated by Cambodia in 2017. Switzerland’s Sucre Suisse SA argued that the description of palm sugar did not meet the EU definition, while Belgian opposition was withdrawn without explanation.

Kampot pepper, Kep salt, Mondulkiri black coffee smoothed with a small loaf of Kampong Speu palm sugar.
It's just so easy to pretend to live like a king in Cambodia.
Now all we need is a good dark chocolate plantation.
