In August, I traveled to Michoacán to visit PRAGOR, the avocado co-operative that we partner with in Mexico. I visited both the avocado growers and the management of the co-op that buys the avocados from individual growers and gets them from the farms to the pack house into Equal Exchange branded boxes, and then sends them on the road to us here in the U.S. every week.
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).

Here on the Equal Exchange blog, we often discuss the woes surrounding the consolidation of natural foods, from the farm level to the store level. Equally as important though, are the discussions around family farmers who are creating success, even along the inherently difficult path that is organic farming. Earlier this month, myself and several others at Equal Exchange had the opportunity to visit with our almond partners, Burroughs Family Farms. At their farm outside Denair, Calif., we shared a meal, toured the grounds, and learned about their methods of organic, regenerative agriculture.Jenica Caudill
