The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the winners of the Sexto Concurso Nacional de Chocolate Peruano. The prize ceremony took place on October 12, as a hybrid, virtual and in-person, ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in Miraflores.

The competition was part of the 12th edition of the 2021 Salón de Cacao y Chocolate which operated with a “mixed format” (virtual-and in-person). The use of the digital platform has been vital to carry out the International Chocolate Awards online evaluation system and protocol for national and international judges in the difficult times of the pandemic and our prize ceremony. The judging panel included food writers, cacao and chocolate experts, journalists, and chocolate tasters from Europe, Peru and the US and members of our international Grand Jury panel.

The judges have diligently worked remotely testing and evaluating anonymous chocolate samples in various categories from all over Peru. In this context, this sixth contest was executed taking into account the International Chocolate Awards Protocols and its online system (although it is not part of its World Series). It should be noted that it is the first cooperation project of the International Chocolate Awards with a cacao-producing country and it is defined as a Cacao Country Support Competition.

The objectives of the present contest have been to support excellence, generate competition, give added value to fine Peruvian cacao by recognizing high-quality chocolates and derived products, promote sustainable businesses and increase chocolate consumption in the national market.

Prizes

Sponsored by the International Chocolate Awards, the competition used the International Chocolate Awards judging system and rules and was adjudicated by members of our Grand Jury. This Cacao Country Support Competition judged bars, filled chocolates, and chocolate beverages, and it is not part of our 2021-22 World Final qualifying series.

** Bean-to-bar chocolatier products – recognising the growing trend of flavoured bars and filled chocolate made by chocolate makers, winning products made with an entrant’s own chocolate are marked with (**).

Prizes were awarded by the Salón del Cacao y Chocolate, Peru 2021 during an official Ceremony on 12 October, 2021 at the Hilton Hotel in Miraflores.
