Using ingredients sourced from fair trade farmers who receive fair wages for their work as well as funding for community development programs and sustainable farming, Alter Eco chocolate is then manufactured in Switzerland in Swiss tradition.

Quinoa is an ancient grain cultivated in the Andes Mountains of South America for over 5,000 years. Locally referred to as the 'mother grain' and as a 'protein powerhouse', quinoa has been said to have kept the Incan armies strong and robust. Alter Eco’s complete line of dark chocolate includes equally impressive and powerful ingredients from Fair Trade cashews, raisins, and fine Arabica coffee beans.
