Quality Awards

In December 2004, Valrhona received the French Award for Quality from the French Ministry of Industry. This prize is awarded to companies who have implemented exemplary quality approaches and continual improvement processes. This award demonstrated a national recognition for efforts initiated in quality management throughout the company, from production to innovation and customer relations. By distinguishing Valrhona, the French Movement for Quality (Mouvement Français pour la Qualité – MFQ) chose to “highlight and promote a human-scale, dynamic, innovative and internationally-oriented company”. In 2009 Valrhona also became the first chocolate factory to receive the TPM Award from the Japanese awarding body JIPM.
