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?

This weekend I put together a hot cocoa bar for some friends and it was a big hit! It was fun to make our own creations and compare the delicious results.

The Community Sales program, which works with congregations and schools, recently hired a group of part-time "Equal ExChangers" across the Southeast to build a local presence for Equal Exchange. The talented outreach team will be attending events and offering presentations to educate folks about how to bring fairly traded products to their community.

This improves soil and water quality, and the farmers' overall health. Drinking organic tea, and particularly green tea, can have many health benefits for you and your family. Let's take a closer look at the health benefits of green tea.

I was nervous about my trip to the D.R. Congo. A war has raged there on and off for decades, and heightened violence and political unrest in 2012 has left more than 500,000 people internally displaced. There was a brief lull in the violence during the month of October, so I took the opportunity to go visit our producer partners at SOPACDI and then make the journey across Lake Kivu to visit the Panzi Hospital.
