Why we love it

At the center of these truffles, you'll find a classic dark chocolate filling. What we love most about them is the texture. They're soft and smooth all the way through the shell, then you're met with a silky reward. This filling is so decadent it reminds us of a masterfully made ganache.

How it does good

Elevating chocolate and the standards for producing it

Cocoa farming poses a big risk for environmental damage, forced labor, and child labor. Alter Eco has set out to make a difference in the chocolate world by putting an end to these dangerous and destructive practices. Every single product Alter Eco produces is sourced directly from small-scale farmers. They go beyond the Fair Trade pay standards by providing their partners with targeted assistance with food security, biodiversity, and gender equality. They've committed to compostable, non-toxic wrappers and have been carbon neutral since 2009.

  • responsible sourcing

    Alter Eco pays their farmers 1.3x (33% more) the standard Fair Trade payment. They also help cocoa farmers transition their land to dynamic agroforestry, training over 400 farmers in dynamic agroforestry since 2015.
  • low carbon footprint

    Founder Tristan Lecomte pioneered a method of integrating carbon offsetting within the company's own supply chain to improve soil conditions, biodiversity and crop health, all while making them carbon neutral since 2009.
  • recyclable packaging

    Alter Eco packs all of their chocolates in 100% compostable or recyclable packaging. And as a part of the OSC2 Packaging Collaborative, a leading sustainable packaging innovation, they've been working since 2013 on removing petroleum-based plastic from our landfills, oceans, and planet.
  • supporting key causes

    Not only does Alter Eco give their employees 3 paid days off a year to support causes of their choice, they also make regular cash and product donations to the organizations their team members are passionate about. These include clean-ups, food services, building green spaces in urban neighborhoods, supporting events for Earth Day and MLK Day, and contributing to Imperfect Produce and SF Recology.

I love Alter Eco!

I stopped buying from Harry and David - their customer service is atrocious. I tried Alter Eco after a bit of research, as I liked the values they espoused. Not only is their customer service lovely, their chocolate has been an instant hit in our house. I buy Alter Eco for all the chocolate lovers in my life. 🥰

These truffles are amazing. I have to limit myself to one a day. Note though they do melt quickly, so it's best to keep refrigerated.


Delicious truffles! Best customer service ever!!

The Classic Dark Chocolate Truffles are scrumptious. I appreciate the company’s pure, fair trade, organic ingredients. It’s also pretty cool how the box is recyclable AND the truffle wrappers are compostable. The customer service was prompt and efficient in sending me my correct order after first receiving the wrong chocolates. We live in Arizona, super hot in the summer, and the package arrived still cool because they surrounded the truffles with cold packs. Excellent service. Can't go wrong with this company.
