Why we love it

One might call quinoa a "rainbow" food. It goes in (and on) so many dishes. This quinoa also happens to be colorful like a rainbow, too. Pearls of white, red, and black create a visual masterpiece on your plate. The taste is also one-of-a-kind. Because the grains are grown in semi-tropical Bolivia, they have a touch of sweetness that most other quinoa varieties do not. That also means they're a touch less bitter than those other guys.

How it does good

Making our favorite foods more favorable to the planet

Conventional quinoa farming poses a big risk for environmental damage, water contamination, and unfair treatment of farmers. Alter Eco has set out to make a difference in the health food world by putting an end to these damaging practices. Every bag of quinoa they produce is sourced directly from organic, non-GMO farmer cooperatives who go to great lengths to protect our earth. Alter Eco has also committed to compostable, non-toxic wrappers and have been carbon neutral since 2009.

  • responsible sourcing

    Every single Alter Eco product is sourced directly from small-scale, organic farmers. These farmer-owned cooperatives invest their profits directly into improving the quality of their products and the quality of life in their communities.
  • 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.
  • 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.
