Valrhona receives the B Corporation seal

This distinction recognises the most committed companies in the world in terms of performance, transparency and social and environmental responsibility.

15 Jan 2021

After a rigorous process of almost three years, Valrhona, an InterSICOP exhibitor, has received the B Corporation certification that rewards the most committed companies in the world in terms of performance, transparency and social and environmental responsibility.

To obtain this seal, 80 points are needed and the company has obtained 88.3 points as a result of several key factors: a reduction of 57% in CO2 emissions related to the activity at the chocolate factory in Tain L’Hermitage, joint representation of women and men, 100% traceability of cocoa beans, bonuses to guarantee a fair income for cocoa producers, etc.

To maintain this certification, Varlhona will have to achieve a better score within three years. For this reason, it has already set itself several objectives, including making its entire value chain carbon-neutral by the end of 2025 and is actively seeking packaging that is sustainable while preserving the taste qualities of the products.
