Equal Exchange Fair Trade Products
Equal Exchange is the nation’s leading Fair Trade brand of chocolate, coffee, bananas, teas and more. I love good quality food both for the taste and the nutrition, so of course I am happy to share with you some of Equal Exchange’s yummy fair trade fall eats. I love fair trade products because they help you to easily support a better system for the workers and the environment. By enjoying Equal Exchange products you join a movement to support small-scale farmers.
Equal Exchange offers delicious fair trade products for the fall such as boxes of holiday mini chocolates, organic coffee, and organic hot cocoa. Equal Exchange offers many other great fair trade products as well as those that I mentioned which are particularly good for the holidays. They also have beautiful handmade gift wrap so you can green your gifts with strikingly unique, sustainable gift wrap. The handmade gift wrap is also great for crafts, scrapbooking and more.
Equal Exchange Fair Trade chocolates and cocoas are delicious treats that support small-scale farmers and their families. They are made with organic chocolate and sugar from co-ops in Central and South America and they taste delicious. I tried the Equal Exchange Organic Holiday Mini Chocolates which come in milk and dark chocolate and these yummy bite-sized chocolates are beautifully packaged, making them perfect for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, and teacher gifts- if you can avoid eating them all yourself, that is. They are soy-free and gluten-free. My kids and I love making their fair trade organic hot cocoabecause it is nice and rich in chocolatey flavor and it is fun to make it together and watch their anticipation.
I was also lucky enough to get to try the Fair Exchange Organic Proud Mama Coffee. “Honoring proud mothers and families everywhere, this blend lifts up women farmers who are becoming leaders and sending their children to school.” I really do feel proud and happy to drink a cup of coffee and know it is helping uplift the families that harvest it. I have been to fair trade farms in Costa Rica and Mexico and I have seen first hand the benefits for the workers. This particular blend of coffee is a medium roast with notes of sweetness and savory spice.
All of these products are available at equalexchange.coop
