Fairly Traded Coffee, Chocolate, Tea & Snacks


Since day one back in 1986, Equal Exchange’s coffee has focused on farmers first. That means we pay a guaranteed price, offer farmers financing, and form direct and long-standing collaborative relationships. This has allowed us and our partners to grow into amazing democratic businesses, influential in local and regional economies. Our coffee embodies our collective beliefs in sustainability and human dignity. No surprise why it tastes so good.

The chocolate industry has a long history of exploitation, child labor, poverty wages and lack of transparency. Conventional chocolate companies are perpetuating these issues on a large scale every day. Equal Exchange has built an alternative by committing to transparently source ingredients at fair prices directly in partnership with small farmer co-ops. We aim to put the power back in the hands of farmers and make the world a little bit sweeter.

Most teas—even those that are certified as fair trade—come from large plantations that were established under colonialism. Workers on these plantations have little say and are trapped in a system of dependency. That’s why we’re building a different tea model, one that gives small-scale farmers greater access to the market, affording them more economic power and healthier communities. With your support, we can help tea farmers build their own democratic organizations and reshape the industry.
