Last month, we traveled to the West Bank to visit our Palestinian suppliers of organic extra virgin olive oil. At Equal Exchange, we are more than familiar with the daunting challenges and obstacles confronting cooperatives of small farmers growing coffee, cacao, and many other products. To those, we need to add all the constraints of physical movement and access to water that are everyday realities for Palestinian farmers given the Israeli occupation of the West Bank.
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).

A year ago we hosted Tomy Mathew at our first Action Forum event at Kickstand Cafe in Arlington, Mass. Tomy works with Fair Trade Alliance Kerala (FTAK), a small farmer organization in Kerala, India, that supplies cashews to Equal Exchange.Frankie Pondolph
