Alter EcoNourishing Foodie, Farmer and Field

When it comes to sustainability…we’re serious. Curious to see how we’re reducing our impact in something as simple as packaging? Click here to learn about the first Home Compostable packaging in North America, and what that means for you!

The undeniable great flavors and quality of our chocolates are primarily due to the uniqueness of the cacao beans grown in Peru and Ecuador, as well as the hard work of our Swiss chocolatiers who have mastered the art of crafting the most delectable bars. So, how can a global brand such as Alter Eco attest to having a sustainable and low impact on our planet?

Whether it be to visit our partner producers in Bolivia or to team up with a local non-profits, we find ourselves all over the world learning about local communities, language and most of all…food. We feel it is important to share that with you, as part of our community.
