To celebrate together Valrhona's 100th anniversary, Valrhona had created with you Komuntu.

Suppliers, cocoa partners, employees, customers, consumers, you were all involved in every step of the way: from finding a unique taste to choosing a packaging design with symbolic patterns which reflects the diversity of Valrhona's different cocoa-producing countries.  All stakeholders of the ethical chocolate world, Valrhona embodies Komuntu.

Its name is a contraction of “Komunumo” which means community in Esperanto and “Ubuntu” an African concept which states “I am, because we are”.

Komuntu is a chocolate created with you, for you.

The whole supply chain has helped create Komuntu’s flavour.  It tells the story of all the people Valrhona has met around the world.  Thus, the blend of its cocoas has a singular aromatic character.  Because Komuntu is the physical embodiment of Valrhona's commitment to a fair, sustainable chocolate sector and creative, responsible gastronomy, during their 100th anniversary year Valrhona is redistributing all the profits made to cocoa producers.

This chocolate is in a format that Valrhona calls 'Les Fèves' - these are small chocolate discs that are easier to work with than bulky chocolate blocks. Note: Due to high temperatures or high humidity, chocolate products may melt during shipment. We only ship chocolate during fall/winter/spring months when the temperature is cooler. However, we cannot guarantee that chocolate will not melt during the shipping process. Chocolate that has encountered melting will appear dull coloured or may have greyish/white streaks and dots. This is known as 'bloom' and indicates that the cocoa butter is separating from the chocolate and is rising to the surface. Although not the prettiest in appearance, chocolates with bloom are fine to eat with little impact to the texture or taste of the chocolate.

Will higher-quality chocolate really make a difference in my cakes, muffins and cookies?
You don't really need to use the highest quality chocolates for your cakes, muffins and cookies. There are many fine, reasonably priced chocolates available in supermarkets that are excellent for cake glazes, mousses, fillings, etc. However, as is so often the case in life, there is a reason why certain chocolates are more expensive than others - quality. This is the reason why professional chocolatiers, bakers and pastry chefs rely on professional quality chocolates. You will find that working with a quality chocolate will eliminate waste, make the process easier and the end product more delicious.
