World Final Winners – 2019

November 22, 2019 11:46 am by International Chocolate Awards in Results, Winners

The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Winners of the 2019 World Final, which was judged in from 7-12 October, 2019 in Florence, Italy.

The Awards Ceremony and Prize Celebration took place on Monday, 18 November, 2019, in the Palacio de los Capitanes, Antigua Guatemala from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. For the first time, the event was held in a cacao producing country, recognising that without the work of cacao growers producing high quality fine flavour cacao, there would be no great fine chocolate.

As well as our main prizes, we also announced for the first time our Chocolate Tasters’ prizes, given by alumni and Certified Tasters of the International Institute of Chocolate and Cacao Tasting.

We thank all our entrants, judges and winners for their support over the year.

We are happy to conclude another great year of National and Regional rounds and to celebrate the ever increasing quality of craft chocolate and the established and new chocolate creators from around the world. We also thank our sponsors for supporting us throughout the year.

Judges

The judging panel was made up of members of our Grand Jury and international judges who traveled to Florence, joined by local chefs, journalists, bloggers and chocolate specialists.
