Taïnori: A taste of a land with unique character

The sunny climate and regular rains of Santo Domingo create fertile soil that have nourished its historic forests and orchards, making it ideal farmland for growing cacao. For a decade now, Valrhona has been curating the perfect growing conditions and building strong relationships with Dominican producers to create a distinctive cacao and expand its palette of outstanding chocolates. Valrhona uses expertise and a hands-on approach with its local partner to select the finest cacao beans on the island. They joined efforts to perfect exclusive fermentation and drying methods to produce this superior cacao to give TAÏNORI its special character.
