Founded by a pastry chef for pastry chefs, Valrhona has provided all its expertise and passion to provide the finest chocolate to gastronomy professionals for the last 90 years. Valrhona is also a committed, socially responsible company whose values are enacted on a daily basis by all its employees, in the chocolate factory, on the plantations, and in dealings with our clients.

Thanks to its close relationships with the chefs, Valrhona established in 1989 with Gabriel Paillasson the very first edition of the world pastry cup during the Sirha exhibition.
Since then, Valrhona has continued to partner this prestigious event, a highpoint in the culinary calendar and an occasion for Valrhona to demonstrate its support for the promotion of international gastronomy.
