1% for the Planet

Little choices, big changes

With its collections Single Origin* and Spring 2024, Valrhona is a member of 1% for the Planet®.

This means we donate 1% of the annual sales from these ranges to environmental non-profits that support causes we hold dear: sustainable cocoa farming, agroforestry, reforestation, and improving the living conditions of cocoa producers.

What is 1% For The Planet?

1% For The Planet is a collective of companies committed to donating 1% of their annual revenue on all or part of their product range to environmental protection organizations. This non-governmental organization was founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, the founder and owner of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, former owner of Blue Ribbon Flies.

We have chosen to be part of it, committing to donate 1% of the annual revenue from our Pure Origin and Spring 2024 Collection ranges.

Valrhona’s chocolate-making expertise empowers taste artisans to explore endless creative possibilities and devise their own personal signatures.
It all starts with the selection of raw ingredients, particularly the cocoa beans: Valrhona’s sourcing team travels the world to select the finest, most unique cocoas directly from plantations.
Single origin* chocolates, are split into two groups: Single origin* couvertures, which are available permanently, and cuvées from small plantations, which are available in limited quantities. Both groups are representative of a single country’s aromatic profile.

Valrhona Spring 2024 collection

This collection, which tells the story of the rebirth of nature in the spring, comes in different formats, including a new, never-before-seen idea: Easter cones.

The elegant, streamlined design of the gift boxes is adorned with bright colors that evoke lush, leafy nature in a nod to agroforestry, a cultivation method supported by Valrhona that respects the soil by mixing different tree species and enables producers to diversify their income.
This springtime collection is sure to delight the whole family!
