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


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



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.
