Alter Eco and NextWorld's Story
Exceptional organic chocolate and a commitment to full circle sustainability are fundamental to Alter Eco’s purpose driven culture and passion for making great chocolate. This approach resonates with consumers: the company has been a market leader in bringing transparency, accountability and commitment to the products they create for their loyal customer base.
Alter Eco’s focus on “enlightened indulgence” provides consumers with products that are “better for all of us” rather than simply “better for you.” This focus is evident in the company’s uncompromising commitment to quality ingredients, sustainable supply chains, and transformative impact on the farming communities that cultivate their ingredients.
We believe in companies and entrepreneurs who challenge the conventional equation on the role of business in society, which thinks of either profitability or impact. Alter Eco’s value proposition is growth for both investors and purpose. Companies that achieve this are still too rare, but when it happens consumers take notice, and great brands emerge.

Mike Forbes became Alter Eco’s CEO in December 2018. He is an outstanding leader for a company focused on innovation, purpose and growth because he is both experienced in CPG and entrepreneurial.
Mike’s leadership of Alter Eco in the next phase of its growth will drive positive outcomes for investors, employees, farmers, sustainability partners, and most importantly, customers. We are fortunate to partner with him as the Alter Eco team delivers enlightened indulgence and full circle sustainability.
