On sustainability from Valrhona:
"WHAT IS AGROFORESTRY?"
Agroforestry means planting trees alongside other trees or plants to create productive, profitable and environmentally friendly land-use systems. The combination of certain plant species with others creates natural feedback mechanisms that enable them all to grow better, in turn improving biodiversity, soil health and crop production.
"WHY THE NEED FOR THIS PROJECT?"
Today, while the industry increasingly adopts intensive monocropping practices, small producers continue to struggle to make a living from cocoa. Cocoa cultivation is also often associated with damaging effects on the environment, most notably through deforestation and the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
We need to do things differently! We are committed to working alongside producers for the long-term sustainability of the cocoa sector and all that work within it. We want to create a true alternative, drawing on people all along the value chain to together offer innovative, responsible solutions.
