How do you make sure that products arrive always on time especially during special holidays (e.g. Valentine's Day)?
Most shipments arrive within 2 business days after ordering. Based on shipping carrier deadlines and holidays before special days, we will make note on our website when orders must be placed in order for them to arrive in time for gifting. We strongly recommend selecting expedited shipping if you are short on time before a special event. 

Can you ship during warm / cold weather?
Yes, we do ship during warm and cold weather alike. Regarding the warm weather, we use a special material that keeps the chocolate protected during the shipping and fresh at the same time. During cold weather, we do not have a problems keeping the chocolate at a stable temperature. However, it can happen that the shipment has been delayed due to unexpected weather disturbances (e.g. snow storm) and that affects regular deliveries.

Can I place an order to be shipped outside the U.S?
It is not possible to ship out of the U.S. through this online boutique website. However, go to to find out about how to get Valrhona products according to your location.

Do you offer same-day shipping?
We do not offer same day shipping at this time.

What shipping carrier do you use?
We use FedEx.

How can I track my shipment?
Once you have placed your order, you will receive a FedEx tracking number to track your shipment. It will give you information about the number of boxes shipped, the date of arrival and the current state of your shipment as well as its location. At the same time, you will receive the order confirmation and the shipping confirmation.

I accidentally wrote in the wrong address, how can I get my chocolate?
If you had an error when typing in your shipping address, please reach out to us at If the package has not been sent, we can change the delivery address. If the product has already gone out, unfortunately, we are not liable for any mis-delivered packages, but we will work with you and the shipping carrier to try to get the package to you.
