Statement from the Alter Eco Leadership TeamDecember 24 2022
We at Alter Eco Foods have always taken great measures, and will continue to take all necessary steps to ensure quality, safety, and regulatory compliance in all our products.
We are aware of all legal and regulatory requirements applicable to our products including California’s Proposition 65 law (the Law). Alter Eco works hard to follow the Law and implements good agricultural practices and the most responsible manufacturing practices. Before putting any product to market, we perform quality control measures that reduce the natural cadmium in our products to the lowest level currently feasible. By doing so, we ensure that the ingredients used in all our chocolate products are responsibly sourced and of the safest quality.
Alter Eco recognizes there are naturally occurring heavy metals such as cadmium in the earth’s soil which become absorbed in naturally grown fruits, vegetables, and plants including cacao, which we use in our chocolate. We understand that any trace levels of cadmium in our products are naturally occurring and solely due to the absorption of the heavy metals naturally present in the soil where our plant-based ingredients are grown.
As always, we thank you for your continued support.
