B CORP: GUIDING OUR TRANSFORMATION
Since January 2020, we are pleased to be a certified B Corporation®. This label recognizes the world’s most ethically committed companies which meet the highest standards in terms of their social and environmental impact. This distinction emphasizes our sustainable development strategy, marked by the desire to co-build a model with a positive impact for producers, employees, taste artisans, and all chocolate enthusiasts.
Valrhona joined the B Corporation® movement with the aim of creating both a fairer and more sustainable cocoa industry and an approach to gastronomy which utilizes good-looking, great tasting food to make the world a better place. To do this, we embed major societal and environmental concerns within our strategy, including fair income for producers, access to education and new initiatives to address the environmental crisis.
Being B Corporation® is much more than a certification, it is a philosophy which has already been embraced by more than 4,000 companies around the world, over 100 of which are in France. We are very proud to be part of it.
