The combined Italian National and Mediterranean regional chocolate competition brings together cultures and chocolate companies sharing the influence and ingredients of the Mediterranean sea. Winners will pass through to the World Final in Florence, in October 2019.

This regional competition awards prizes for chocolatier products including filled chocolates/bonbons, pralines, flavoured bars and chocolate spreads. Plain/origin and flavoured bean-to-bar products from all European, African and Middle East chocolate makers will be judged at the European Bean-to-bar Chocolate Maker competition, held in Copenhagen, Denmark 12–16 June, 2019.

The International Chocolate Awards is an independent competition recognising excellence in fine chocolate making and in the products made with fine chocolate.

Judges

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

Prizes

The categories judged included 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, 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.
