Equal exchange

Purpose: fair trade
Products: coffee, tea, chocolate, snacks, gifts

Equal Exchange is a worker–owned cooperative that has been leading the authentic Fair Trade movement and creating big change since 1986. We believe in a fair and honest trade system that empowers both farmers and consumers, and with your help, we are creating a more equitable, democratic, and sustainable world.

To help realize this vision, we have built long-term, mutually beneficial trade partnerships with small farmer cooperatives around the world. These relationships mean better prices for our producers, higher quality products for you, and a stronger global community. We've committed to the environment, too, by implementing sustainable, organic agriculture practices to protect its valuable resources.

More than just a fair price
Our relationships with our farmer partners differ from what is seen on conventional markets. We offer pre-harvest credit and financing to support farmers during off seasons, and Fair Trade premiums provide funding for projects like new schools, roads, clean water, healthcare or agricultural equipment — the makings of healthier, stronger and more sustainable communities.
