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?
With recent inquiries regarding levels of arsenic in rice, our Director of Operations has written out a few important details about where Alter Eco stands.
I just came back from a trip to visit our friends at the Rice Fund Surin co-op in Thailand where our delicious Hom Mali Jasmine Rice, Purple and Ruby Red Rice are produced. I travelled with Justin Murphy (pictured right) from the Tidal Creek Co-op in Wilmington, NC. Last year, Justin won a Trip-to-Thailand contest that Alter Eco put together with the NCGA (Natural Cooperative Grocers Association), a group that represents 130 local co-ops here in the US. We were thrilled to travel with a representative from one of the stores supporting Alter Eco products in the United States in a true co-op to co-op experience.
