Bokeo Info
Bokeo NTFPs-Bokeo Province, Laos

Bokeo’s mountains supply non-timber forest products (NTFPs) for food, tools, handicrafts, buildings, medicine, and rituals. Social collectives are preserving the traditional knowledge needed to harvest, process and store the materials, and market the finished product.

Bokeo Social Enterprise in Ban Nam Keung produces NTFPs such as cosmetics; brown sugar-glazed, stomach-soothing ginger candy; nam oy (sugar cane); and banana liquor infused with cinnamon or cardamom.

The Lahu in Ban To Lae produce export-grade organic honey and beeswax lip balms from indigenous bees, which differ from European honeybees. Locals harvest tea leaves from ancient trees in the Nam Kan NPA, and bake them in bamboo tubes. Also growing on Bokeo’s trees are gem-shaped mak ku (pine nuts), and ton khaem (broom grass) line the province’s roads.
