Whole, Healthy and Minimally Processed
Chocolate For health and flavor benefits, Alter Eco maintains a focus on whole grains and minimal, local processing. Some of their chocolate bars have as few as four ingredients. Alter Eco is also committed to saving heirloom varietals, many of which are disappearing in the face of industrial agriculture. Beyond their environmental boon (crop diversification and long term biodiversity), these ancestral foods have unique flavors and rich cultural histories that connect eaters across time and continents.
And like our organic and sustainability-minded colleagues, Alter Eco has a zero tolerance GMO policy.

Our expert chocolatiers use unique flavor combinations, quality organic ingredients and an artisan's touch to craft these award-winning, habit-forming bars.
