Equal Exchange Chocolate

Organic & Fairtrade

Ethics & Philosophy

In a nutshell, Equal Exchange promote an honest and equal exchange. You get the world's finest organic and fairtrade products, the farmer gets a better life and the environment is cared for too. Simple really.

The origins of Equal Exchange stretch back to 1979 when three voluntary workers returned to Edinburgh after working on aid projects in various parts of Africa. Along with a sister organisation in London, Campaign Co-op, they started buying instant coffee from Bukoba on Lake Victoria in Tanzania. As a result Campaign Coffee was born.

The volunteers had seen how small scale farmers were getting into debt due, in part, to the appallingly low prices they received for their products. Aid was not the only answer – direct, fairer trading could help redress the balance!

Many years later, after bigger campaigns, more education and better products finally reaching independent retailers and supermarkets, the three volunteers’ dreams are beginning to be realised.

Based in Edinburgh, Equal Exchange now stock a range of items, from tea to chocolate, honey to nuts, all of them fairtrade and ethically sourced. They have built relationships throughout the developing world ensuring the ethics of Equal Exchnage remain at the fore of the cooperative.

And, Equal Exchange is indeed a workers co-operative. It is a company that is owned & controlled by its employees. Each employee member has an equal share in the ownership of the company and operates within a shared common value system. Like all co-operatives they subscribe to seven founding principles that include concern for the community and education training and information.

Chocolate anyone?

Equal Exchange joined forces with their sister co-op in the US, also named Equal Exchange, which resulted in the production of a new range of Organic fairly traded chocolate bars hitting the shelves.

These rich chocolate products are crafted using the best quality organic cacao (cocoa beans) from the Dominican Republic, Peru and Ecuador. They work with small-scale farmer cooperatives that cultivate this cacao using organic and environmentally sustainable methods. This means that by choosing these gorgeous choolate bars you help provide small – scale farmers with the resources and opportunities they need to build a better future for their families and communities.

And now, Equal Exchange chocolate is available for UK wide delivery via Fresh Food Express
