Small Farmers. Big Change Equal Exchange s delicious coffees, teas, chocolates and snacks support positive change- change to a food system that no longer worked for most small-scale farmers or consumers. We believe there s a better way of doing business that s fair, earth-friendly and lets you know where the foods you buy come from. We invite you to join us in creating big change - for farmers, the environment and you.. Farmer Cooperatives in three countries have joined together in a unique collaboration to provide ingredients for this organic hot cocoa. Farmers of the CONACO Cooperative in the Dominican Republic grow the organic cacao , the organic sugar cane is produced by co-ops in Paraguay, and the organic milk is from the Organic Valley co-op in Wisconsin. Your purchase of this co-operatively produced cocoa helps to ensure a better future for farmers and their communities.
