Equal Exchange Review and Giveaway



Have you heard about Equal Exchange? They are a company that partners with a co-operative of farmers from all over the world to mutually beneficial relationships between farmers and consumers. Equal Exchange currently works with small farmer organizations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the United States. They provide organic coffees, teas, chocolates, cocoa, bananas, olive oil and snacks. We tried the coffee in Hazelnut Creme (medium roast), the Hot Cocoa, the Mild Chocolate bar with a hint of Hazelnut, and the Chocolate Caramel Crunch with Sea Salt bar. As a coffee lover this was perfect, light and sweet with a hint of nut. Great taste!




JJ loves Hot Cocoa so he was all about trying that. It is made with Organic nonfat milk and you just add hot water. He of coarse drank it right up :)






The chocolate bars were my husbands department, he loved the Milk Chocolate bar but the Chocolate Carmel Crunch is dark chocolate so he scowled a bit at it. He does not like dark chocolate, I on the other hand thought it was delicious. It has a little crunch to it, which I like in my chocolate anyways.







Their Guiding Principles-
  • Trade directly with democratically organized small farmer cooperatives.
  • Facilitate access to credit for producer organizations.
  • Pay producers a guaranteed minimum price that provides a stable source of income as well as improved social services.
  • Provide high quality food products.
  • Support sustainable farming practices.
  • Build a democratically-run cooperative workplace.
  • Develop more environmentally-sound business practices.

Equal Exchange has created Big Change since 1986. Our founders envisioned a food system that empowers farmers and consumers, supports small farmer co-ops, and uses sustainable farming methods. They started with fairly traded coffee from Nicaragua and didn't look back.

Today, we continue to find new and powerful ways to build a better food system. We partner with co-operatives of farmers who provide high-quality organic coffees, teas, chocolates, bananas, olive oil, and snacks from all over the world.



I love the idea of people helping people to provide high-quality, organic, tasty products for us to consume. It is a win win in my mind. Equal Exchange also provides fundraising opportunities, what a great way to get your child's school or your religious group involved.


For schools, sports or community groups Equal Exchange offers great high equality products for Green Fundraising opportunities.  With the holidays coming now would be a great time to team up with Equal Exchange.
