TAMARAMA, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alter Eco, pioneer of globally-crafted organic foods with full-circle sustainability, announced it has strengthened its relationship with leading natural foods distributor, Unique Health Products, making the company its primary retail distribution partner for the independent and natural channels.
An independently-owned and operated company for more than 10 years in Australia, Alter Eco is dedicated to crafting delicious fairtrade, organic foods with the simple mission of supporting farmers to build sustainable futures around the world.
Ilse Keijzer, Founder and Director of Alter Eco in Australia, states, "Since our humble beginnings in Bondi Beach over 10 years ago, Alter Eco has built a strong following across Australia, and we’re delighted to expand our partnership with Unique Health Products to more efficiently supply the natural and independent retail channels in all Australian states. We are aware of rumblings that Alter Eco was sold to another company or has ceased manufacturing its own products, and want to very clearly assure our retail partners and consumers that Alter Eco is, and always has been, an independently owned company, and that our products will continue to be available to any interested retailers. Our updated relationship with Unique Health Products will help us further our vision of facilitating accessibility of our high quality, organic, fairtrade, and carbon compensated products to as many people as possible while growing the volume we purchase to help maximize our positive impact on indigenous farmers and their communities.”
As one of the first organic, fairtrade chocolates available in Australia, Alter Eco practices full-circle sustainability using Fair Trade values. The company creates minimal waste by working towards 100 percent compostable packaging (Alter Eco chocolate truffle wrappers are already fully non-GMO, home compostable), and offsetting 100 percent of its carbon emissions through large reforestation projects within the farming communities in the Amazon region who supply Alter Eco’s ingredients (“in-setting”). Co-founded by transplanted Dutch entrepreneur Ilse Keijzer, Alter Eco is a values-based brand that crafts minimally-processed and single-origin organic, fairtrade, gluten-free, soy-free and non-GMO chocolate bars and chocolate truffles made with pure coconut oil to directly benefit small producers globally. Alter Eco also offers organic and fairtrade heirloom Thai rice and Mascobado cane sugar.
A leading chocolate brand in the premium and sustainable segment in Australia, the company selects only the finest South American organic cacao beans and works with expert Swiss chocolatiers to create its deliciously smooth chocolates. Alter Eco is available at major retailers, all health food stores, leading independent retailers, selected pharmacies, online stores and cafés across Australia.
