Our Social Impact
To imagine the best chocolate, you have to start by giving the best. This is what we strive to do every day through the four pillars of our sustainability program Live Long.
Valrhona's Policy Against Child Labor
Child labor is a major problem facing the entire cocoa and chocolate sector. It is our belief that action must be collective if is to have the greatest impact, which is why we have joined the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI). This foundation dedicated to protecting children in cocoa-growing communities works to secure a better future for children and their families. Learn more about the practical action we have undertaken to fight against child labor in our 2021 Declaration on Combating Child Labor.
Our Responsible Purchasing Charter
We’ve made a mutual commitment with our suppliers by signing the Responsible Purchasing Charter.
This charter describes the commitments that we expect from all of our suppliers in terms of labor rights, ethics, environmental protection, risk management and food safety.
Our commitment to forests
We are committed to protecting the forests in the 16 countries where we source cocoa through our Forests and Agroforestry policy.
It is thanks to this commitment that we are members of the Cocoa and Forests Initiative, and that we also carry out numerous projects around the world to develop a more sustainable farming model.
Our CSR reports
For several years now, we have been analyzing our results in the field through our Live Long Valrhona CSR reports.
These performance reports help us to measure our impact on the various drivers of our long-term strategy, how far we have come and how far we still have to go.
It is also in the interest of transparency that we publish these activity reports each year, which you can download from our Press area.
Valrhona supports Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund
As a certified B Corporation, Valrhona places its commitment to social responsibility at the center of its business model, continuously striving to create a more responsible culinary industry. In light of the challenges facing chefs, food business owners, and hospitality workers due to the response to COVID-19, it is imperative that members of the food industry pull together to meet the needs of workers in crisis. One of the ways Valrhona will strengthen recovery efforts is by supporting Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation (RWCF) in 2021. The chocolate company is donating $1 for every 1 kg block of AMATIKA 46% and $3 for every 3kg of AMATIKA bag sold in North America with all proceeds going to the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.
