“Together, good becomes better”
Valrhona has long questioned the impact of its work on people and the planet. In 2002, the company formalised its sustainable development strategy via the Live Long program. From that moment, Valrhona defined itself as a company whose mission statement, “Together, good becomes better”, conveys the strength of its commitments. It works every day to maintain a fair and sustainable cocoa industry which respects people, natural resources and the planet. 100% of cocoa beans can be traced back to their original plot. That way, Valrhona stays in contact with its 17,215 partner producers.
Through its work, the Valrhona Foundation goes some way to improving their living conditions. It allows for their producer families to access education and guides them towards sustainable agricultural practices so that the supply chain is free from deforestation and biodiversity is preserved.
Thanks to their continuous hard work, in January 2020 Valrhona was proud to win certification from a very demanding organization, B Corporation®. B Corporation rewards the world’s most committed companies that puts equal emphasis on economic, societal and environmental performance. This certification is tangible proof that they take their chocolate’s impact seriously.
