CRS Ethical Trade Project

Faith, Solidarity & Justice

With Equal Exchange and Catholic Relief Services

Through the Catholic Relief Services Ethical Trade program and Equal Exchange, your parish can purchase fairly traded, organic and delicious coffee, chocolate, tea and other foods at wholesale prices. By your purchases, you act in solidarity with small farmers who feed their families, strengthen their communities and preserve their environment with your help.

Now, support farmers and Catholic Relief Services by using CRS Mama Tierra, coffee produced by a partnership between Equal Exchange and CRS. Proceeds from the sale of this coffee go directly to CRS’ work with small farmers in southern Mexico and Central America.

How to Use Fairly TradedCoffee, Tea & Chocolate

Catholic Relief Services works with Equal Exchange to bring you high-quality coffee, tea and cocoa products — always paying farmers fairly. You can order over the phone, or by making an account for your parish on our web store. Once you're logged in, you'll see the wholesale pricing you're entitled to. There are many ways to share these delicious products at church and in your community.
