Valrhona - passion for dark chocolate perfection.
How do Valrhona achieve such perfection? You only have to look at the extraordinary lengths they go to when sourcing the main ingredient - suitable cocoa bean supplies.
For example, it takes each Valrhona cocoa bean buyer 2 years to review just 80 cocoa plantations; the cocoa plantations being spread across 22 countries.
Valrhona chocolate liaise directly with local cocoa bean growers rather than wholesale markets and dealers. This ensures quality over the whole growing and production process – from cocoa bean harvesting to the fermenting and drying of the cocoa, before it’s shipped.
When a cocoa bean shipment arrives at Valrhona’s premises, the beans are painstakingly inspected to ensure there are no off-odours (which would result in ‘off-flavoured’ chocolate) and that no foreign bodies are present. Moisture content is verified to ensure that all of Valrhona specifications have been met before the consignment is accepted.
Further tests, including producing a small batch of finished Valrhona chocolate couverture are carried out, before the final seal of approval is given.
