Why we love it

Baking cocoa is one of those things that from-scratch bakers know you always need on hand. Whether it's for a dense and creamy chocolate buttercream frosting, a homemade cocoa mix, or your own spin on a mint chocolate cookie, you'll want to have a cannister of the good stuff ready to go. And Equal Exchange's organic, fair trade baking cocoa is definitely the extra good stuff.

How it does good

A closer connection between people and farmers

The tea, cocoa, and coffee farming industries are at the highest risk for worker exploitation and contributing to deforestation. For standard brands, these supply chains are notoriously lacking in transparency. That’s why Equal Exchange created a fair trade model that cuts out the middleman. Instead, they focus on direct, transparent trade with farmers and cooperatives. They work in collaboration with Root Capital and other organizations to help build farmer cooperative training programs. A USAID partner, Equal Exchange is heavily engaged in farmer cooperative capacity development, bringing technical assistance to in-country growers to help increase productivity, reliability and ultimately success in a global market.

  • supporting key causes

    Equal Exchange donates 10% of their annual profits to organizations that align with their mission. They also direct grants to farmer cooperatives to work on projects ranging from investing in coffee tree nurseries to creating beekeeping collectives for farmers so they can diversify their crops and income.
  • responsible sourcing

    By using fair and direct trade practices along with organic farms, Equal Exchange makes sure their supply chains are creating a better place for people and the planet.

When you're done...

The plastic lids can be recycled through TerraCycle by following our special intructions. But the canister is waste that goes in the garbage bin.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.
