The Valrhona Company

I would like some more information about the B CORP certification

Everything you need to know about the B CORP certification

Since 2006, the B Corp movement has been promoting strong values of change throughout the world to make companies "a force for good" and distinguish those that balance profit and purpose. Its holistic and demanding vision revolves around 5 impact areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. B Corp's objective is to certify companies that integrate social, societal and environmental objectives into their business model and operations. B Corps want to make a positive contribution to society and do not strive to be the best IN the world, but the best FOR the world! In addition to their own progress-making approach, they’ve develop the principle of interdependence: Projects between B Corps are privileged, and B Corps strive to “pollinate” their entire ecosystem of suppliers, customers or partners.

Proud to be B CORP

Since 2020, Valrhona is certified B CORP. Obtaining this certification is a huge honor but also a philosophy that we wish to implement for the future. To learn more about our results and our road map, please visit our Proud to be B CORP page.
