Supporting our customers to create a gastronomy that does good and tastes great.

Commitment to the gastronomy professions

F ood is one of life’s great pleasures – sustaining us, transporting us and bringing us together for shared experiences. But today we’re in the midst of a climate, biodiversity and public health crisis, crises for which the food system must shoulder significant responsibility.

At Valrhona, we believe that the world of gastronomy can be the source of the solution. Chefs have the ability to create food culture - influencing how, what and when people eat. It is this power that can be used to positively impact the planet, our diets and our future. Increasingly, chefs are taking action to integrate their social and environmental impact into their creations.

Through Live Long Gastronomy, we aim to support them to do so, and together create a world of gastronomy that not only looks and tastes good, but that also does good too.
