Together, Good becomes Better

A partner of taste artisans since 1922, and a pioneer and specialist in the world of chocolate, Valrhona defines itself today as a company whose mission statement “Together, let’s use good food to make the world a better place” conveys the strength of its commitment. Together with its employees, chefs, and cocoa producers, Valrhona creates the best in chocolate to shift the status quo towards a fairer, more sustainable cocoa industry and gastronomy that tastes great, looks great and does great things for the world.

Building long-term partnerships directly with cocoa producers, sharing know-how and looking for the next chocolate innovation are the challenges that drive us to do better every day. Working alongside chefs, Valrhona promotes craftsmanship and supports them in their quest for uniqueness by constantly pushing the limits of creativity.
