Making tomorrow sweeter: Sustainable Gastronomy
We believe that you, chefs, have the power create a delicious and sustainable future. We want to help you do so.
Food is one of life’s great pleasures – sustaining us, transporting us and bringing us together for shared experiences. But today we’re in the midst of a climate, biodiversity and public health crisis, crises for which the food system must shoulder significant responsibility. At Valrhona, we believe that the world of gastronomy can be the source of the solution. Chefs like you have the ability to create food culture - influencing how, what and when people eat. It is this power that can be used to positively impact the planet, our diets and our future.
The world of sweet gastronomy faces specific sustainability challenges. Until now, however, there has not been a coherent framework for what ‘good’ looks like in the sector, nor tailored advice to help pastry chefs and artisans improve their impact. In partnership with Food Made Good - Valrhona’s official sustainability partner - and chefs across the world, we aim to change this.
Through our framework and guide, understand the key issues the sector faces and find practical advice on how to address them. Use our free self-assessment tool to understand how your business is performing compared to peers and get recommendations on how to go further. Discover our tools below!
Together, let’s ensure the desserts, pastries, chocolates, and ice creams that we treasure not only taste good but do good too.
