The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the second Central America support Competition which was held on 1 – 5 December, in Guatemal City, Guatemala.

The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, following five days of judging, which included judges from the UK, USA, Europe and Asia and members of our international Grand Jury panel. The panel was made up of chocolate experts, pastry chefs, journalists, restaurant reviewers, bloggers, culinary educators and chefs.

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 will receive a prize.

The 2018 Central American competition Finalists are:
