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.
  • low carbon footprint

    Equal Exchange uses solar panels on their roasting facility to offset part of their energy use. By partnering with local farmers and gardeners, they turn used burlap bags and chaff from the roasting process into useful growing material. Plus, they compost in their offices.

How to use it

Mix two tablespoons of Organic Hot Chocolate with six ounces of hot milk and serve.

When you're done...

Recycle the aluminum seal and base in a curbside bin. The plastic lid is recyclable through TerraCycle by following our special instructions. The foil-lined canister should be thrown away for now.

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

Very easy to make and very yummy, my husband and I challenge each other to see who can make the best hot cocoa and I won this round!

Worth Trying!

Was looking for something new. I liked that this brand had a little bit of fiber in the servings, plus was working to be better for the environment in regards to packaging. The hot cocoa is rich and creamy, and tastes like the "fancy" delectable hot cocoa but for much less money!
