Craft Choc Finalists plus British decorating bon bons Teaser

The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the 2021-22 European Craft Chocolatier combined competitions, which were judged in late 2021 and early 2022 and included DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), Scandinavian, Eastern European, French and Benelux entrants. Entries into the Craft Chocolatier competitions are required to give traceability details of the sources of cacao used in the chocolate and these are vetted before approving entries.

Finalists

The Grand Jury Finalists are the entrants that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, having at least one product that scored at 80/100 or more. (80/100 is the score from which products are considered to have fine flavor quality and be free of major defects.) The scores are finalised by the Grand Jury, who consider and review products where there is not a high level of agreement within the main judging panel. Products with scores with a high level of agreement will be automatically assigned prizes according to their score.

Prizes

While listing as a Grand Jury Finalist is an achievement in itself, not all Finalists will receive a prize. Prizes are awarded according to standard benchmark scores for each medal, which may be varied according to the category, local conditions and statistical analysis of the judging scores.

Scores

Scores will be made public after the winners are announced and will be shown for the Finalists only (80+). Scores are not shown for entries that did not achieve a Finalist level to maintain entrant confidentiality.

The scores are calculated using the IICCT Flavor Profiling system and are weighted to match recognised coffee scores, where speciality coffee would begin with a minimum score of 80/100 and upwards.

The 2021-22 European Craft Chocolatier Finalists are:
