The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Winners of the second Scandinavian Regional Competition for chocolatier products, which was judged in Copenhagen, Denmark at the Hotel- og Restaurantskolen/Copenhagen Hospitality College, 22 – 25 January 2015. The winners were announced at the Copenhagen Chokoladefestivalen on 7 March 2015.

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 local experts, food journalists and pastry chefs from Denmark and members of our permanent international Grand Jury.

Prizes

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.

A list of the Grand Jury Finalists, entries that made it to the final Grand Jury round from which the winners are selected, is published here.

Due to exceptionally high scores and quality of entries in the « Flavoured dark chocolate ganaches or truffles » category, two golds were given for the top two entries, which were on a virtual tie, and six silvers were given due to the depth of high scoring entries.
