The International Chocolate Awards are an independent organization, partnering with fine chocolate experts and organizations in different countries with independent verification and oversight. The International Chocolate Awards judges bars and filled chocolates (bonbons, pralines, ganaches, chocolate spreads and typical national chocolate products) in national and regional rounds with a Grand Final judging the best of the best. Competitions are held in a growing number of countries and regions around the world, including Italy, the UK, USA, Germany, Scandinavia, Belgium and other locations, with more competitions added each year.
The Academy of Chocolate was founded in 2005 by five of Britain’s leading chocolate professionals, united in the belief that eating fine chocolate is one of life’s great pleasures. Academy members meet to taste, discuss, demonstrate and debate issues regarding sourcing, transparency and the journey from bean to bar.
