Welcome to Equal Exchange, a worker-owned co-operative.
Equal Exchange has created Big Change since 1986. It all started with an idea: what if food could be traded in a way that is honest and fair, a way that empowers both farmers and consumers? What if trade supported small farmer co-ops that use sustainable methods, rather than industrialized agribusiness that relies on exploited labor and harmful chemicals? Our founders asked these questions as they envisioned a trade model that values farmers, consumers and the earth.
Our products now include fairly traded and organic coffee, tea, chocolate and snacks from all over the world, including here in the United States. We invite you to join us. Together we can create stronger local communities, a more just food system and a healthier planet.
