Alter Eco Debuts Dark Chocolate Smalls

SAN FRANCISCO — Alter Eco, a chocolate-centric, sustainability-directed snack company that takes healthy indulgence to a whole new level, provided a first look at its new Dark Chocolate Smalls and seasonal packaging at Natural Products Expo East 2018, booth #1414. Proving that good things come in small packages, Dark Chocolate Smalls are available in three best-selling flavors, including Sea Salt, Burnt Caramel, Blackout, and a limited-edition holiday medley pack with all three varieties. Alter Eco will also showcase holiday packaging for its existing line of decadently smooth Medley Truffles, giving conscious foodies another reason to gift the bite sized bars and truffles to loved ones.

“Following our rebrand launch earlier this year, we took a close look at daily moments and occasions where our chocolates can truly shine, whether it’s a small treat after a meal or part of a holiday celebration,” said Edouard Rollet, co-CEO and co-founder at Alter Eco. “Our new Smalls and festive holiday packaging are fun new ways for consumers to experience and share Alter Eco, while increasing opportunities in store for POS and trial.”

Hitting shelves February-March 2019, Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Smalls will be available in convenient 10-count recyclable boxes ($4.79) filled with individually wrapped, portion-friendly 0.28-ounce bars; perfect for shoppers who want to stock up on sweet pantry staples during their weekly grocery trips. Dark Chocolate Smalls will also be available in 80-count display boxes for purchasing at the register or on shelf ($0.59 per truffle). Like all of Alter Eco’s rich dark chocolates, Sea Salt, Burnt Caramel, and Blackout are crafted with organic cacao beans hand-harvested on the Ecuadorian Coast and finished by expert Swiss chocolatiers. Each small is made with next-level ingredients that are USDA Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certified, Carbon Neutral Certified, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten-Free and free of emulsifiers, soy and artificial flavors.

Alter Eco’s holiday packaging for its Medley Dark Chocolate Smalls and 60-count Medley Truffles will be available for order for the 2019 holiday season and beyond.

All show attendees will have the chance to indulge in the brand’s enlightened portfolio of organic chocolate bars, truffles and Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters. Its full range of foods are available in 10,000+ retail locations nationwide, including major natural food retailers and grocery stores like Whole Foods Market, Natural Grocers, Wegmans, Sprouts, Kroger and Publix.
