Valrhona has been partner to masters of flavor since 1922. As a pioneer setting the standard in the market, our vision is to imagine the best of chocolate with you. We believe in a collaborative approach to chocolate. We are convinced that when we share our experiences, we can sustainably develop the chocolate world.
So that we can imagine the best of chocolate with you, we first need to scour the planet for rare cocoas.
This mission is carried out by our sourcers, which select the most singular cocoa and forges long-term links with producers. Collaborating in this way allows us to constantly enrich our understanding of cocoa, become our own producers in some plantations and, as a result, bring innovations to each stage of the making process – growing, fermentation and drying – so that we can further diversify our cocoa.
Because our sector’s whole future is dependent on plantations, we make an on-the-ground commitment alongside our cocoa producer partners. We invest to improve local communities’ well-being and to create the cocoa growing techniques of the future through the Cocoa Forest scheme.
With Valrhona, you too can forge a sustainably developed future for cocoa.
