Therefore, currently, in the wholesale market, pepper is being traded very bustlingly. If you are in need of buying pepper in bulk, the 8 notes shared in our article below will help you find the right pepper wholesalers to work with.

Where to find reliable pepper wholesalers?

The first question that comes to mind when you want to buy pepper in bulk is where you can source potential wholesalers for this spice. How to find reliable pepper wholesalers for your business?

Look for local pepper wholesalers

With the development of the internet today, most businesses appear online and it is easier than ever to find them. If you want to find pepper wholesalers, then type on google related keywords like “pepper wholesalers near me”, “pepper wholesalers in *your country*”, “wholesale pepper suppliers”, etc. Then, a series of suppliers will appear on the search page and you only need to list the suppliers that you think are suitable for your business.


Look for local pepper wholesalers

If you don’t trust the businesses you find using keywords on Google, try flipping through the list of reputable agricultural associations in your country to select reputable members. Like in Vietnam, we have the Vietnam pepper association, Vietnam cinnamon and star anise association, Vietnam rice association, etc.


Flipping through the list of reputable agricultural associations

Normally, only companies with clear information and providing good-quality products are eligible to join such associations. So, find out if there is a pepper association in your country, and choose pepper wholesalers who are members of that association.

Import from international suppliers

If you live in countries that do not have the strength in pepper production, the price from domestic suppliers will often be quite expensive. At this point, a more reasonable option is to import pepper from foreign pepper wholesalers, specifically from markets well-known for producing this spice such as Vietnam, Brazil, Indonesia, India, etc. Among them, Vietnam is the market that sells pepper at the best price as this country is the largest pepper-producing and pepper-exporting country in the world, accounting for 35% of the global market share. It is estimated that Vietnam’s pepper output in 2022 will reach 175,000 tons, down 10% compared to 2021.


Vietnam is the market that sells pepper at the best price

If you are looking to import pepper in bulk, you should choose pepper wholesalers from the above countries. You can search for them using direct keywords like “pepper wholesalers from Vietnam”, “Brazil pepper suppliers”, or “Indonesia pepper wholesalers”. In addition, you can search for them on agricultural associations or reputable companies listing or ranking websites such as Tridge, Go4worldbusiness, Yellowpages, Alibaba, etc.

4 things you should do to identify trustworthy pepper wholesalers

After you have sourced out several potential pepper wholesalers for your business, you should do the following things to assess whether they are reliable suppliers.

Check company profile and authentication documents carefully

Firstly, you should ask your pepper wholesalers for business documents such as business licenses, company records, product quality certificates, and BL copies of their previous orders, etc. In this way, you will know if these companies are actually doing business or not. These documents are very easy to edit and forge these days, so double-check the documents your supplier sends you. Compare the presentation of the document as well as the red seal on it with those of other standard documents from their country. Some quality certificates for pepper are Halal, Kosher, FDA, FSSC 22000, ISO 22000, etc.

Visit the suppliers’ production facilities and head offices in person

To check the credibility of a pepper supplier, besides asking them to send pictures and videos, visit their facility in person if you have the opportunity. That way, you will know if they really do business, and whether the company is professional or not.

Assess whether they have expertise in products and your market

During your conversation with your supplier, keep an eye on whether they really have the knowledge and experience in your market (like your market’s tastes and import procedures into your country).


For example, if they are an experienced pepper supplier, they will know that in the European market customers will prefer high-quality pepper such as 580 G/L, 600 G/L, or 630 G/L types, and in the Indian market, customers will prefer pepper of slightly less quality like pepper with lower G/L index like 430 G/L, 450 G/L, 500 G/L. Inexperienced pepper wholesalers will give incorrect advice about your market, so when you import the products, it will be difficult to sell them.

Ask the pepper wholesalers to send you product samples

Don’t hesitate to ask potential pepper wholesalers to send you product samples. Since they sell products in bulk, and you are also a bulk buyer, the suppliers will gladly send you a free sample from 100gr – 1kg, depending on the agreement between the two that the samples can probably be more. In this way, you will be able to check the product’s quality comprehensively such as smell, touch, look, taste, etc.

3 scams pepper wholesalers often use to trick you

As one of the largest pepper wholesalers in Vietnam, we understand some tricks that suppliers often use to deceive you. Please read the following information carefully to avoid being scammed when trading!

Forging quality certificates and old bills of lading

Nowadays, with the development of photo editing software, scam vendors can forge documents to gain your trust. They can provide you with fake product images and factory images, or edit or create fake old bills of lading and quality certificates. Therefore, you need to check the documents of the suppliers carefully if you want to find reputable pepper wholesalers for your business. Think about it, if you deal with a pepper supplier who has never had export experience and is not honest, can you be assured of that cooperation?

Use chemicals on pepper to trick customers

Currently, there are 4 main types of pepper on the market: black pepper, white pepper, red pepper, and green pepper. However, black pepper and white pepper are the two most popular types in international trade.


4 main types of pepper

As for white pepper, the reason people prefer white pepper is that it is beautiful and eye-catching. However, in fact, there are suppliers that will soak white pepper in chemicals to make it look whiter. White pepper that is made properly will definitely be yellow and slightly black, never as pure white as it is on the market today, we guarantee that for sure.


White pepper like this is 100% sure to soak in chemicals, please note


This color white pepper might be soaked in mild bleaching chemicals, but it’s relatively safe


High-quality pepper from K-Agriculture Factory

The more beautiful the white pepper, the more dangerous it is as it can have been chemically bleached. With white pepper, pepper wholesalers can also bleach with hydrogen peroxide, which is less harmful to health than bleach.

Send you lower-quality products than requested

There are many pepper wholesalers who will send you high-quality samples to make you trust them. However, when you have actually signed a sales contract and deal in bulk, they may add powdered soil or coffee waste to the goods to trick you. Normally, pepper is harvested, dried, and screened very cleanly by farmers, with a moisture content of 10%. But traders, after buying dried pepper from farmers, re-wet it with water, then mix it with dried powdered soil, the soil will absorb water and stick to the pepper. The soil surrounding the pepper helps increase pepper volume. And as you know, the higher the G/L index of the pepper, the higher the price. So, if you deal with unreliable pepper wholesalers, you will pay a higher price for the actual quality of the pepper.


In addition, to turn low-quality or flat peppercorns into high-quality pepper, many pepper wholesalers can mix yellow, white, and dark red starches of unknown origin, and cook them into a thick, pale black solution. Then, they mix the flat pepper into the solution, stir it up, and dry it in the sun. Then, flat pepper will turn into firmer, blacker pepper.


In this way, even if you can recognize that it is a lower quality pepper than the quality promised in the contract and claim compensation from the exporter, this process takes a lot of time and expense. So be careful when dealing with pepper wholesalers you don’t understand well.

Be careful with third parties when dealing with pepper wholesalers

Usually, for many businesses, instead of performing logistics operations, they will hire another unit to perform import and export procedures instead, or you are the buyer who also hires the shipping unit. Due to authorization, this party will carry out the rotation of goods and clear customs. They take advantage of exporters who often do not organize inspection or sketchy inspection of goods information before delivery to exchange goods, withdraw goods before trading, deliver goods not in accordance with the contract, and goods that do not meet the requirements of quality standards. This not only affects the reputation of the exporter but also affects your business.
