The Episcopal Relief & Development Fair Trade Project
Now you can support the work of Episcopal Relief & Development simply by purchasing some of the world’s finest coffees, teas, chocolates and foods. Not only will your purchase of these items help heal a hurting world, they will also provide a fair wage to the members of the small farming cooperatives that produce them.
We would like to introduce you to the Episcopal Relief & Development Fair Trade Project, a partnership with Equal Exchange, the first U.S. food and beverage company to adopt the international Fair Trade standards (in 1991). Equal Exchange is not only a leader in providing some of the finest coffees (16 varieties, 14 of which are organic), teas, chocolate, bananas, nuts and other products; they also operate in a manner that works in harmony with Episcopal Relief & Development’s asset-based methodology.
