The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the Italian/Mediterranean Chocolatier Competition which was judged in Florence, Italy from 23 – 26 February 2018.

The judges were drawn from local experts, food journalists and pastry chefs and members of our permanent international Grand Jury and guest judges.

The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, following an initial technical Selection round and two days of Main round judging. The Finalists are the nominations from which the Grand Jury select the prize winners, through private voting. The Grand Jury follow strict rules, which you can read here (PDF).

While listing as a Grand Jury Finalist is an achievement in itself, it does not necessarily indicate that the entry received a prize.

The 2018 Italian/Mediterranean Chocolatier Finalists are:
