Venchi Certifications and Awards

At Venchi we strive to continuously improve our processes and to ensure the highest quality and safety of our products and their ingredients.

BRCGS and IFS certifications

In confirmation of our daily commitment to the quality and food safety of our products, we have earned two of the most important internationally recognised certifications: BRCGS Global Standard for Food Safety and IFS (International Food Standard).
These are two food safety standards recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), an international initiative whose main objective is to strengthen and promote food safety throughout the supply chain. Both standards identify specific elements of a management system focused on product quality and hygiene safety, which consider the HACCP methodology as a reference for planning and implementation.

Rainforest Alliance

When it comes to Venchi's efforts to continuously improve its industrial processes and the selection of ingredients and materials to ensure an increasingly transparent and sustainable value chain, the first chapter dedicated to cocoa opens with the Rainforest Alliance certification. 
Rainforest Alliance is an independent NGO that certifies the cocoa supply chain with the objective of conserving biodiversity, protecting the environment and promoting the rights and welfare of workers, their families and communities. Our goal is to certify all our cocoa by 2025.

Tavoletta d'Oro Award

The Tavoletta d'Oro (the Gold Bar) represents the most authoritative award for quality chocolate in Italy.
As noted by Gilberto Mora, President of Compagnia del Cioccolato: "For more than 20 years the Tavoletta d'Oro Award has been seeking out, tasting and informing chocolate consumers of the products that best reflect an intrinsic quality, a controlled supply chain of the best ingredients and the great chocolate-making art of Italian producers”.

In 2021, the amount of electricity used by our production facility fell by 50% compared to 2019 despite a 15% increase in the amount of chocolate we produced. This was possible thanks to the co-financing of the ROP Piemonte ERDF 2014-2020, which allowed us to make significant investments that have made us more efficient.
