Equal Exchange bought our first container of coffee from The Alto Occidente Coffee Cooperative of Caldas (CCAOC) in 1995. With every container of coffee we buy at above market prices, we are helping the farmers to stay on their land, provide for their families, invest in their cooperative, improve their communities, and gain economic power in the marketplace.
At Equal Exchange, we are thrilled to open up a new supply chain: organic cashews grown by small-scale farmers in El Salvador. Delicious, sustainably grown, revolutionary for the nut trade - and they’re a healthy snack. What more could you ask for in a product?
