DACH Hannover

The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Winners of the German, Austrian and Swiss Competition (DACH). The competition was held for the fifth time from 1 3 May 2018, with our regional partner chocolats-de-luxe.de, in Hannover.

The award ceremony will take place in September 2018 at the Schokoladen-Gourmet-Festival (Chocolate Gourmet Festival) in Hannover. The judging took place at the inspe-ct food analysis laboratory of Dr. Thorsten Sander, where we were able to judge under laboratory conditions, a new and exciting experience for us.


The judging panel was made up of pastry chefs, journalists, restaurant reviewers, bloggers, culinary educators and chefs, as well as members of our Grand Jury.



The entry categories 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.
