We are now using sustainable palm oil

Save the OrangutansWe at Alternative Baking Company, Inc.® are proud to announce that starting  August 26, 2013, all our cookies are now being made with new palm oil. We have paired up with a company that supplies us with palm oil from Belém, Pará, Brazil that is:

  • RSPO Certified/sustainable,
  • certified organic,
  • Fair Trade,
  • GMO-free, and
  • Kosher.

We have listened to our consumers’ concerns regarding our use of palm oil and are now striving to do our part in preserving the rainforests and nurturing the natural habitat of orangutans and other creatures; in preventing pollution, deforestation, and reduced biodiversity brought on by the destruction of plantations; and in respecting the land belonging to indigenous people.

This shift ensures that our company continues to provide gourmet-quality vegan cookies while also taking care of our environment. We hope you will continue to enjoy our cookies.

Online orders will now be shipped through FedEx

Starting tomorrow, September 4, 2013, orders placed online will no longer be shipped through USPS. We will be switching to mailing your orders through FedEx.

We have had problems with lost packages and the inability to provide tracking numbers. The solution we settled on is to make the switch. Unfortunately, this means we can no longer ship to P.O. boxes.

Packages with APO/FPO P.O. box addresses will still be mailed through USPS.

EDIT:

Shipping is still free within the US; we do not ship to Puerto Rico. We still charge a $15 fee to Canada.

EDIT 2:

We just learned that FedEx adds an extra charge upon the arrival of the delivery to Canada. Due to this, we will continue to ship to Canada using USPS.
