El Puente is among the pioneers of the fair trade movement. Already since 1972, El Puente has stood as the 'bridge' between north and south, and has worked with small businesses and cooperatives in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Our work is not profit-orientated. Through the import and distribution of fair trade products, we support more 140 trading partners in 40 different countries.
Our range of products consists of around 5,000 handicraft and food articles. Thus, our assortment ranges from jewelry and bags, to tableware and decorative pieces, right up to coffee, chocolate and spices. As a wholesale trader we sell our goods to fair trade shops in Germany and Europe.
