Equal Exchange is a thriving model of Fair Trade that has exceeded our founders’ original vision. With over 30 years of experience behind us — a history replete with successes, failures, innovative partnerships, exciting new products, and inspiring stories — we are nevertheless humbled by just how far we still need to go. Not so long ago, the specialty coffee industry dismissed our vision of more equitable relationships with farmers as unrealistic.
Fairness to farmers. A closer connection between people and the farmers we all rely on.
