Valrhona

Valrhona has joined the community of B Corporation® certified companies

The B CorpTM community brings together companies around the world who place their societal mission at the core of their purpose. They meet the most demanding standards in terms of social and environmental impact. B Corporation® certification highlights the strong points of the transformation policy that Valrhona has been developing for several years:

  • Long-term partnerships between Valrhona and its cocoa partners: Guaranteed, 100% traceability of cocoa with 18,208 producers, implementation of a “living income” approach to ensure they receive a fair revenue, community support projects over several years (building schools, access to clean water…).
     
  • A lower environmental footprint for the company: Since 2013, Valrhona has reduced the carbon emissions of the production facility in Tain l’Hermitage (France) by 57%.
     
  • Equal representation and well-being at work: 55% of employees at Valrhona are women (including the Managing Director), and the company has been a Great Place to Work since 2012.
     
  • Company Mission: Actions to create a just and sustainable cocoa sector, and practices to inspire more responsible gastronomy are at the core of Valrhona’s purpose.

With 88.3 points, Valrhona is now the largest chocolate maker for professionals in the world to achieve B Corporation® certification. An impressive performance, since the average score for companies taking part is 50.9 points.
Of the 80,000 organizations worldwide who have undertaken the evaluation, only 3,200 have received certification, in 130 industries and 60 countries.

« Our organizations must no longer try to be the best in the world, but must also be the best FOR the world »
