European, Middle Eastern and African Bean-to-bar Competition 2020 – Winners

octobre 4, 2020 3:50 by Viesha Tews in Winners

The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Winners of the 2020 European, Middle Eastern and African Bean-to-bar Competition, which was judged remotely, over summer, 2020.

Please note: This is a temporary posting of the winners. A full post including a list of judges and Grand Jurors will be published shortly. The team is taking a rest after the virtual ceremony!

We will also publish a full list of Finalists including scores compiled using our new judging system. This will be available from the week of 12 October 2020. Thanks for your patience.

The Bean-to-bar competition focuses on fine, craft and micro-batch chocolate makers who work directly from cacao beans to produce plain/origin and flavoured chocolate bars from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Winners will go through to the World Final later in 2020. The competition was supported by our regional German partner chocolats-de-luxe.de
