Why is Equal Exchange now using Institute for Marketecology (IMO) for most of our products?

Equal Exchange has been a leader in Fair Trade since we helped develop the concept with coffee in the United States in 1986. We have third-party certification for the producers we work with, and the products we sell, and now have the ability to certify our own workplace practices as well. We believe strongly in holding ourselves to the same high standards to which we hold our farmer partners, and see this full supply chain certification as one more way to demonstrate that commitment.
