All producers in the Kampong Speu palm sugar Geographical Indication area are not yet engaged in the GI quality approach.

As the demand for high quality Kampong Speu palm sugar (GI) is increasing, the Kampong Speu Palm Sugar Promotion Association (KSPA) has started a campaign to enroll more producers. From October to December 2020, 83 new palm sugar producers joined the association and committed to comply with the quality requirements of the Protected Geographical Indication.

In total, there are now 150 producers engaged in the production of GI Kampong Speu Palm Sugar. They are harvesting the sap from 3,637 sugar palm trees with an estimated potential production of about 250 tons annually.

To make sure all Kampong Speu palm sugar producers are fully compliant with the quality requirements, the  Kampong Speu Palm Sugar Promotion Association (KSPA) provides training and coaching too all of them on the production methods and quality requirements  (based on the Book of Specification of Kampong Speu Palm Sugar Geographical Indication). At the same time, KSPA also prepares and distributes the “book of producers” to each member to record sugar production and sales, as part of the traceability requirements. Through March 2021, KSPA distributed the books of producers to all 150 members and trained all of them on production and traceability.

Kampong Speu palm sugar: Protected Geographical Indication

The Protected Geographical Indication gives you the guarantee of the origin and quality of this exceptional sugar.
