La Siembra Co-operative is dedicated to promoting a new model of trading partnerships guided by the principles of fair trade. Incorporated in 1999, La Siembra is one of the first companies to import, manufacture and distribute fair trade & organic sugar and cocoa products in North America. From humble beginnings, working out of a church basement in our first year, we have always had a big dream: Fair Trade for everyone.
Along with the help of our like-minded partners, producers, distributors, retailers and consumers, we have helped strengthen the democratic organizations of thousands of small-scale farmers and engage consumers to challenge the corporate control of food and reshape our food system in ways that benefit all of us. Owned by La Siembra, Camino® is a brand of fair trade & organic consumer products and bulk ingredients sold in over 4000 retail outlets across Canada. La Siembra also proudly distributes Equal Exchange® products from its sister co-op in the US.
This position will be responsible for servicing and growing La Siembra’s diverse, direct, and wholesale customers and fundraising accounts. From schools to bakeries, natural health stores to retail chains, this is one of La Siembra’s most energetic, interesting sales positions.
La Siembra’s ideal candidate will help Camino clients by providing direction with regards to product mix, pricing and promotion. You will bring a strong understanding of industry trends, Canadian organics, retail sales and a passion for high-quality, organic, fairly traded food.
