The Chocolate Academy has announced the results of its remaining categories in its 2021 awards. These categories include hot chocolates, spreads, flavored couverture bars, and Academy of Chocolate brand experience awards.
Due to the global pandemic and the restrictions it has brought with it, this year the judgment and the award announcement have been separated, but the Academy comments that despite the challenges of Covid-19, “we are absolutely delighted to see the extensive innovation and creativity coming from chocolate makers around the world.
“These categories were incredibly competitive and really showcased the diversity of manufacturers and products.”
Spanish company Casa Cacao won gold in the Brand Experience category for its Bean to Bar Experience Box, a product showcasing the changing nature of cocoa beans, aiming for transparency and consumer appreciation for the origins of its chocolate.
In the hot chocolate categories, American company Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate and Dubai-based Mirzam Chocolate Makers each won two awards. French chocolatier Chocolaterie A.Morin also featured prominently, as in the bean-to-the-bar categories, with three more wins.
