Valrhona is working to cut our environmental footprint in half by 2025. Improving the environmental impact of our products throughout their life cycle, committing to eco-designing, and promoting agroforestry with our planter partners are just a few of the ways we are working to achieve this goal.
Managing the environmental impacts of our business requires collaboration, innovation, and ongoing improvements.
We have made substantial progress to reduce the impact of waste through improved packaging design.
Our environmentally friendly design initiative is a great opportunity to innovate while putting our environmental values into practice.
These Gift Boxes are the pilot project in our Eco-Design Adventure, rethinking the role of our packaging to not only be beautiful, but sustainable as well.
Over the past years, we have trained all teams in implementing eco-friendly criteria and sustainable tools when designing our product recipes and packaging.
Our New Eco-Designed Gift Boxes are a family of expertly designed gift boxes, crafted to showcase the expertise of the handcrafted chocolates as well as emphasize their beauty. Our new boxes are visually appealing but use 40% less cardboard, reduce the weight by 66%,
save 5.5T of cardboard annually, and are fully recyclable.
We integrate environmental criteria into our merchandising and services. As one of many companies in the food service business, we continue our commitment to
lead the industry toward a more sustainable future.
