VALRHONA

Since its birth in 1922, Valrhona has remained true to its vocation - to create exceptional chocolate using the world’s very best cocoa beans, in keeping with traditional hand-crafted chocolate making techniques. But Valrhona’s mission is also about being a partner to our professional clients in order to better understand and meet their expectations and help them succeed.

EXPERTISE,

FROM PLANTATION TO HAUTE GASTRONOMY Expert in Fine Cocoa Very few chocolatiers have gone so far as to become chocolate growers in order to understand the process better and to have complete control over the quality of the beans and guarantee the taste of their cocoa. Valrhona, however, masters every step in the chain of production. Their selectors, planters and sourcing experts the world over share the same passion and are working to ensure quality of a level that makes this chocolate truly exceptional.

Ambassador of fine taste Since its creation, Valrhona’s mission has been to contribute to the success of its professional clients in the gastronomy industry, both in France and throughout the world. Acting more as a partner than as a simple supplier, the brand has gradually gained a better understanding of their expectations and has developed close professional ties to support and promote the trade. One of the best illustrations of that relationship is Valrhona’s presence alongside its clients during some of the world’s most prestigious professional events.

Creator of Unique Tastes To consistently guarantee the high-quality flavor and aromatic profile of its chocolates, Valrhona is committed to a unique strategy of flavor management. At the heart of this strategy is the involvement of every employee at every level, as well as rigorously applied strict quality controls, from the cocoa plantation to the product’s creation and promotion. It is this strategy that has earned Valrhona chocolate the title of “Grand Cru”. Pastry-making creativity Valrhona’s internationally-recognized expertise is inextricably linked to the École du Grand Chocolat. Created in 1989 by Frédéric Bau, this center for the creation of pâtisserie and techniques for working with chocolate is the reflection of a traditional savoir-faire developed over time to serve Valrhona’s professional clients.

VALRHONA... A HUMAN STORY THE TASTE

RESPECTING MANKIND AND ITS RESOURCES... Valrhona has always demonstrated its commitment to exceptional quality, and anything less is unacceptable at any level of the company. Valrhona strategy focuses on three main areas: ITS Employees OHSAS 18001 certification since 2004: Occupational Health and Safety Management System.

ITS ENVIRONMENT ISO 14001 certification since 2005: Environmental Management System.

THE ART

OF TECHNIQUE TO CREATE...

In 1989, Valrhona created a professional training centre in Tain l’Hermitage to help its customers learn specific technical skills in the fields of patisserie and chocolate making. The team of pastry chefs at the École du Grand Chocolat now receives more than 800 trainees every year from all around the world. Moreover, l’Ecole creates and publishes over 100 new recipes every season for patisserie, desserts or chocolates. In 2007, Valrhona opened the École du Grand Chocolat in Tokyo (Japan) and in 2009, a third in Paris.

TRAINING COURSES

ITS CUSTOMERS ISO 22000 certification since 2006: Food Safety Management System.

Blend of Grands Crus With its “Blend of Grands Crus” range, Valrhona has created blends of chocolate with elaborate, unique flavors. In their cocoa laboratory, Valrhona’s blenders use their expertise to come up with original pairings to produce chocolates with inimitable and constant flavor. Their secret? They combine different varieties of fine chocolates from various regions that have been chosen for their complementary aromatic profiles. A specific production process then brings out the typical flavor of each blend.

Grand Cru de Terroir

DARK CHOCOLATE

With its “Grand Cru de Terroir” range, Valrhona has created chocolates with distinctive tastes that are truly representative of their origin. Valrhona’s sourcers have been touring the world for years to learn about each country’s plantations (their altitudes, soils and climates, all of which affect the nature of the cocoas they produce). Valrhona thus selects cocoas from the very best plantations, where nature is fully expressed and people cultivate unique know-how (harvesting, fermenting and drying beans).

araguani 72%

OTUCAN 69%

It differentiates itself by its soft and persistent bitterness. Its mineral freshness is tinged with accents of green banana, hazelnut and walnut. Its slightly sweet character emphasizes its floral notes.

Araguani offers a perfect balance between warm notes of raisins and chestnuts and more spicy licorice notes for exceptional length on the palate.

A fresh and acidic attack of red fruit flavors with a delicate finish of roasted nuts. Manjari - the unique result of careful processing techniques to preserve the characteristics of selected Madagascan cocoa beans.

The island’s natural exposure to the wind is expressed by the intense freshness of its delicate aromas. The balance of the chocolate note is delicately enhanced by a touch of peppermint.

Exclusive Valrhona YOU WERE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH DARK CHOCOLATE - NOW DISCOVER THE P125 COEUR DE GUANAJA DARK CHOCOLATE CONCENTRATE. Valrhona’s Research and Development Department has developed an innovative technology to present you with the very first Dark Chocolate Concentrate: P125 Coeur de Guanaja. Made with the same blend of fine cocoas as Guanaja, it is a technical solution intended to boost the chocolate intensity of your recipes. Indeed, in some recipes, the cocoa butter contained in chocolate couvertures limits the amount of chocolate use (the chocolate flavor is then quite mild and the color is light) or requires the use of cocoa powder (the flavor and color are “naturally” less “chocolaty”).

Innovations AFTER DARK, MILK AND WHITE CHOCOLATE… DISCOVER DULCEY BLOND CHOCOLATE 32%

Valrhona launched its Dulcey Blond Chocolate 32% with its unique characteristics in September 2012. It was inspired by Frédéric Bau’s original recipe and has been enhanced by our experts. This new recipe, which is even more divinely indulgent than other white chocolates, richer than milk chocolate and sweeter than dark chocolate, provides craftsmen and chefs with a new forum for expression.

DULCEY 32% Creamy & Toasty THE ADVANTAGES: • A unique blond color that stands out • A delicious taste that’s not too sweet with intense biscuity flavors and a pinch of salt • A creamy texture

Flavor pairing suggestions from l’Ecole du Grand Chocolat: Dulcey goes particularly well with ingredients that contain indulgent notes such as caramel, coffee and hazelnut. It is also very good with yellow fruits that are low in acidity such as mangos, bananas and apricots.
