Women and Coffee

From the orchard to the coffee shop, females perform an important part in each and every component of the coffee supply chain. A brand-new movie short from Equal Exchange commemorates the role that women play in this business. In the movie, we witness as the eco-friendly coffee purchaser contacts an organic coffee company in Honduras. After reaching America, the coffee is baked and then presented to customers in Equal Exchange’s coffee shop in Boston. In every phase of the supply chain, we see females are blazing a trail. Although the coffee industry has a very long way to go in the direction of gender equal rights, we praise Equal Exchange for highlighting the important management roles that women currently have in this sector. Watch the movie and get motivated people!
