Sales Representative

Equal Exchange

About the organization

Equal Exchange started with an idea: what if food could be traded in a way that is honest and fair, a way that empowers both farmers and consumers? We work to change the power dynamics in the food system. How we do that is dynamic and evolving, but is rooted in relationships and organic products like coffee, tea and chocolate. Who knew that social change could taste so good?!


Sales Reps work with our team and our business customers to get small farmer products to consumers through effective sales programs and education about mission impact.
Responsibilities include: Meeting annual new sales and growth goals, participation in strategy and team development, order taking and customer service as needed.
