Our progress to date
In Ghana and Ivory Coast
In Ivory Coast, over the last five years Valrhona has bought its cocoa at a price averaging 34% more than the minimum guaranteed by the state. Valrhona also gives producers a premium based on quality. An independent third-party organization (JLB Expertise) checks that this bonus payment is allocated correctly.
In Ghana, in 2022, the premium per bag was increased by 40% to help producers cope with local inflation.
