Sales Team Generalist

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 Generalists are part of our Sales Team and they work with our customers to build successful programs in the market, including at food co-ops, stores and cafes. This includes discussing products, pricing and promotions, and building relationships. Depending on their location, Sales Generalists may also take and process orders and/or deliver and merchandize products to select customers in their region.
