The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Winners of our sixth Eastern European Competition, which was judged over March and April, 2020. The competition encompasses Eastern, Central and North Eastern Europe and is the first international competition to support the growing interest in fine cacao and fine chocolate making in these regions. Winners will pass through to the World Final later in 2020.


The judging panel was made up of member of our Grand Jury and international judges, local chefs, journalists, bloggers and chocolate specialists.



The categories judged included flavoured bars, filled chocolates and spreads and are based on yearly feedback from our entrants and in consultation with the fine chocolate industry. Plain/origin and plain milk or white bars will be judged at the 2020 European Bean-to-bar Competition. All judging is anonymised, including at the Grand Jury final session, where Golds, Silver and Bronze prizes are awarded by private voting according to the Grand Jury rules.

Awards are awarded only to entries that meet the required standard for each prize.
