What is the Baptist Fair Trade Project?
Started in 2011, the Baptist Fair Trade Project is a collaboration between Equal Exchange and BPFNA - Bautistas por la Paz to involve more Baptist congregations and individuals in supporting small farmers around the world.
Through the Baptist Fair Trade Project, churches, organizations and individuals may purchase organic, fairly traded products at wholesale case prices, ensuring that more of the money spent on coffee, tea, chocolate and other products reaches the hardworking farmers who actually grow them.
Equal Exchange has been a leader in the U.S. fair trade movement for over 35 years, trading directly with small-scale farmer cooperatives, owned and run by the farmers themselves. Farmers receive a higher price for their crops and advanced credit. And because farmers are paid above market prices, they are able to make investments in community projects, educational programs, and technical trainings. The co-ops keep rural communities healthy and strong and keep local cultures vibrant. Equal Exchange is also committed to supporting sustainable farming methods that help green the earth through reforestation, natural resource conservation, and organic practices.
