Alter Eco’s LIVE ECO VALUES
JUSTICE, EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Chocolate continues to be made at the expense of the people and planet that feed us. We acknowledge that the destruction of our planet worsens inequities in the food system, disproportionately hurting marginalized groups.
We strive to conduct our business in a way that prioritizes social and environmental justice. We pay farmers above Fair Trade prices, fund community development, and support the transition to a sustainable agroforestry model, providing resilience to adapt to a changing climate. We foster a workplace culture that is committed to supporting each other and our mission to be the change we want to see in the world.
The survival of our planet and food sources will rely on the restoration of our ecosystems and the elevation of marginalized communities.
