Dark Velvet combines the finest cocoa with a touch of milk to round off the luscious dark chocolate flavor and make it supremely smooth.
Alter Eco Chocolate is 100% natural, made with Organic ingredients, and contains no artificial flavors or sweeteners. The small-scale farmers of the El Ceibo cooperative cultivate cocoa crops using traditional farming techniques that produce the finest organic cocoa. The very best cocoa beans are selected and combined with organic unrefined cane sugar to make this deliciously rich bittersweet dark chocolate.
All of their chocolates are Fair Trade Certified. This means that the farmers who grew the ingredients were paid a better, more stable price for their crops than in conventional trade. In order to help the farmers sell directly, the El Ceibo cooperative has invested, with the help of Alter Eco, in equipment to process and transport their cocoa. By selling on Fair Trade terms, the farmers are able to invest in high-quality production, increase their incomes and improve their living standards. El Ceibo benefits 800 families in the Bolivian Amazon.
