Black Pepper

I’m Al Goetze, McCormick’s chief spice buyer, here with a report on Indonesia’s black pepper crop. This is one of the key regions from which McCormick sources its black pepper. The harvest is in full swing, and from now through late July, farmers will be hard at work in the fields. In this installment of the Spice Buyer’s Journal, I’m excited to give you a behind the scenes look at America’s most popular spice.
