SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alter Eco™, pioneer of globally crafted foods with full-circle sustainability, announced the launch of two new dark chocolate flavors to its line of decadent, organic truffles, Sea Salt and Salted Caramel. Crafted with signature Ecuadorian cacao and nutrient-rich coconut oil, each perfectly portioned treat is organic, Fair Trade and made from the highest quality ingredients, enclosed in a compostable wrapper.
“At Alter Eco, we want to change the world, one wonderful mouthful at a time,” said Edouard Rollet, co-founder and president of Alter Eco. “These delicious new truffles offer unique, elevated flavor profiles for consumers who want a high-quality, delicious indulgence that is also nutritionally considered, environmentally responsible and socially just.”
Both new truffles begin with the subtle crunch of an organic, dark chocolate shell covering a silky, melt-in-your-mouth center made with nourishing coconut oil and speckled with prized Fleur de Sel de Guerande, a culinary sea salt hand-harvested from ancient salt villages in France. The Salted Caramel truffle has the addition of buttery, caramel blended throughout the mouth-watering creamy filling.
As a company deeply committed to environmental sustainability, the new truffles also feature groundbreaking new eco-friendly compostable wrappers that are printed with non-toxic ink.
