Scandinavian Winners 2014

The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Winners of the first Scandinavian Regional competition for flavoured bars, filled chocolates and spreads, which was judged at Hotel- og Restaurantskolen/Copenhagen Hospitality College, Valby, Denmark.

The International Chocolate Awards is an independent competition recognising excellence in fine chocolate making and in the products made with fine chocolate.

International judges

The judges were drawn from experts, food journalists, sommeliers and pastry chefs from Denmark and Sweden and members of our permanent international Grand Jury. A list of the judges who attended the competition and profiles on each of the Grand Jurors will be published shortly.


The entry categories include flavoured chocolate bars, filled chocolates and spreads and are based on yearly feedback from our entrants and in consultation with the fine chocolate industry. All judging is anonymised, included at the Grand Jury final session, where Golds, Silver and Bronze prizes are awarded by private voting.

The Grand Jury were impressed by the overall standard of entries, inventive use of local ingredients and traditions and reinterpretation of classics.

A full list of the products that made it to the Grand Jury round will be published in the next few days.
