Product Information

Valrhona is passionate about constantly improving its Assemblages d’Exception aromatic range, which is why it has created a dark couverture chocolate that stands out for its light, balanced flavor. But Oriado is an innovation in another sense too.
For the first time, Valrhona is revealing the origins of one of its Grand Cru blends as a way of visibly committing to quality and traceability in the cocoa industry. Oriado is made exclusively from the best organic and fair trade ingredients (Fairtrade/Max Havelaar and Agriculture Biologique certified). It is a testament to the lasting relationships between Valrhona and local producers.

The cocoa used to make Oriado is a blend of exceptional beans from two origins: the Dominican Republic and Peru. The former is world renowned for its fertile soil nourished by regular rains and frequent sunshine, whereas the cacao trees from the Piura region of Peru develop in a dry tropical area (even though they generally need a very humid climate). This “cocoa oasis” grows in the middle of a dry environment thanks to an extraordinary system of irrigation channels.

This chocolate was originally developed for coating and is, in my opinion, the finest 60% cocoa dark chocolate in our range.



Oriado’s creamy, vanilla-inflected mellowness lulls you into a siesta on warm sands, as the sun intoxicatingly caresses your skin.
