EquiMercado is an importer and distributor of organic and Fair Trade products. EquiMercado is a tool of Fundación Adsis that works for the sustainable development of farming communities in the countries of the South.
Today, after more than 25 years of existence, they distribute more than 300 products of organic food and natural cosmetics. Currently, they work directly with a large number of cooperatives, mainly formed by women, in Ecuador, Perú, Bolivia, Chile, Guatemala, South Africa, India, Sri Lanka and other countries. They buy the products directly from these cooperatives according to Fair Trade criteria.
They focus on sourcing products from small-scale farmer and worker groups across the Global South. They support and work alongside with these groups to trade their way out of poverty and help them, their families and communities to get sustainable development.
Their products combine quality and respect for the environment, workers, their dignity and their basic social rights. All their products have been purchased from small Fair Trade cooperatives. Thanks to Fair Trade, these cooperatives get a fair price for their products without the intervention of local intermediaries, and they can guarantee a better future for their workers and their respective families. They are dedicated to applying Fair Trade principles across their whole range of products. In this way, their suppliers in Europe are always small companies or cooperatives who share their principles in equity, social justice and respect for the environment.
