Four years ago, the Equal Exchange banana team launched an avocado program knowing little about the avocado market and the realities of the industry in the U.S. We started our work in avocados because we met a small farmer co-op fighting for market access in an industry where farmer voices were absent. Equal Exchange has always had a non-traditional approach in the way that we craft our producer relationships and introduce new products. Not the typical, “there is a need in the market, let’s fill it;” instead we build through relationships.
Our expanding line of Fair Foods includes olive oil from the West Bank, almonds from California, cashews from El Salvador and India, mango from Burkina Faso, raisins from Chile, and more.
Made with wholesome, fairly traded ingredients sourced from small farmers around the world, our organic fruit and nut bars provide an alternative to conventional snacking.
We are building long-term transparent supply chains with nut and dried fruit farmers all over the world.
AvocadosEqual Exchange is excited to announce a new partnership with PRAGOR, a progressive group of small-scale avocado farmers in Mexico. Learn more here.
Our extra virgin organic oil is robust and peppery with a strong fruit finish. It comes from two farmer co-ops which are part of the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees (PARC).
