Product Information

Smitten with the powerful, uniquely flavorsome beans that its sourcing teams uncovered in Madagascar, in 1990, Valrhona decided to declare its love by creating Manjari. This allowed Valrhona to demonstrate the fine quality of Madagascan cocoa, and Manjari became one of the brand’s true classics. The name Manjari comes from both “good” in Madagascan and “bouquet” in an Indian Hindustani dialect.

Manjari is the product of a long-running partnership between Valrhona and the Millot plantation in northern Madagascar. Valrhona is committed to improving the living conditions of plantation employees and their families. The construction of a village with 45 homes and a health center offers the families more living space, and a nurse is permanently on site. Respect for the environment is a priority: water is carefully preserved and the soil is nourished with natural fertilizers. 

Valrhona and the Millot plantation produce a wonderful, delightful cocoa while always caring for workers’ wellbeing and continuously improving their respectful treatment of this unique environment. 



With its fleshy notes of tangy red berries, each bite of Manjari takes you on a voyage to Madagascar – also known as the “Scented Isle” – where amazing cacao trees, delicious fruit and wonderful spices all grow.
