With news of child labor, human trafficking and slavery in the cocoa farming industry even the most devoted chocaholic can hesitate when reaching for that chocolate bar.

Lutheran World Relief offers a sweet alternative: Fair Trade chocolate from Equal Exchange!

With our Fair Trade partner, Equal Exchange, you and your congregation can enjoy high quality Fair Trade chocolate directly from smallholder farmers all around the world. Each bar of this Fair Trade chocolate delivers to you a direct relationship with cocoa farmers and their families from across Latin America. And each bar strengthens LWR's relationship with farmers around the world by donating 20 cents per pound back to the LWR Small Farmers Fund.

Equal Exchange is a worker-owned cooperative based out of West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Their mission is to:

“build long-term trade partnerships that are economically just and environmentally sound, to foster mutually beneficial relationships between farmers and consumers and to demonstrate, through our success, the contribution of worker co-operatives and Fair Trade to a more equitable, democratic and sustainable world."

Equal Exchange handles all the ordering, billing and fulfillment of your order of Fair Trade chocolate.

Equal Exchange donates $.20 to LWR’s Small Farmer Fund for each pound of Fair Trade coffee, chocolate, tea, cocoa, sugar and snacks you order.
