Equal Exchange is a worker-owned co-operative and alternative trade organization, founded in 1986. We are headquartered in West Bridgewater, MA with offices and warehouses in St. Paul, MN, Madison, WI, Cleveland, OH, Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, and cafes in the Seattle, WA area. Unlike most companies that seek to maximize profits for their investors, our goal is to maximize benefits to farmers. We have long-term, direct relationships with small farmer organizations around the world to source delicious organic coffee, tea, chocolate, cocoa, sugar, olive oil, nuts and dried fruits. And, we engage consumers in the U.S. to challenge the corporate control of food and reshape our food system in ways that benefit all of us.

We put a lot of energy into hiring the right employees to thrive in our co-operative. Please take a look below to see our current job offerings. Check back often for new postings.
