About Us



Back in the 1980s their ancestors were the largest exporters in Tanzania and in the 1990s ran a network of washing stations. In 1991, Equatorial Traders was established in London, harnessing its extensive origin experience and long-term relationships whilst expanding its network globally.

Today, Equatorial Traders continues to embrace this legacy, using it as a foundation underpinned by its core values to become a leading global coffee supplier.
