Valrhona has been producing the world’s finest chocolate in the small village of Tain L’Hermitage, France since 1922.
From the beginning, company founder and Pastry Chef Albéric Guironnet was dedicated to the creation of unique, artisan quality chocolate with complex, balanced and consistent flavours. This mission of excellence continues as the gastronomic traditions of the renowned Rhone Valley find expression in every mouthwatering taste of Valrhona’s superb chocolate.
For almost a century, Valrhona has created a range of unique and recognizable aromatic profiles by perfecting techniques for enhancing the flavour of rare cocoa beans, grown on land masterfully selected for its terroir. Today, leading Pastry Chefs and discerning gourmets rely on Valrhona’s expertise to experience the best that chocolate can be.
Since January 2020, Valrhona joined B Corp with the aim of creating a fair and sustainable cocoa sector and a gastronomy world that does good and tastes great. This is why they have integrated tackling social and environmental issues into their business strategy, including the fight against global warming and the reduction of their carbon footprint.
