Equal Exchange is one of the largest and best known worker-owned cooperatives in the country. One of the pioneers of the Fair Trade movement, they have focused on the promotion and the distribution of Fair Trade foodstuffs for over 30 years and have helped introduce the concept of Fair Trade to mainstream retail outlets and consumers.
Best known for their equitably sourced organic coffees, Equal Exchange has expanded to distribute Fair Trade tea, cocoa, sugar, chocolate, nuts, bananas, and avocados, all produced by cooperative farms in Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Their business model success and advocacy have helped reshape the marketplace. Their massive distribution networks have helped bring Fair Trade goods to market across the US.
The Untours Foundation has been an ongoing supporter of their Fair Trade work and mission.
