Celebrating 2011 Academy of Chocolate Awards

It is only a couple of months ago that we were celebrating after winning 11 prestigious 2010 Great Taste Awards. We were proud to have been made the greatest winner within the Chocolate categories for the second year running by an independent panel of judges for excellence in fine food, provenance and great taste.

On 19th April, the Academy of Chocolate announced the winners of the ‘2011 Academy of Chocolate Awards’ and once again we are cracking open the Champagne bottle to celebrate winning multiple awards including a Gold and two Silver Awards.

In keeping with the aims of the Academy, criteria for the awards are that products contain natural ingredients with no artificial flavourings and colourings. The Awards attract entries from producers and chocolatiers around the globe and help recognise some of the world’s finest chocolates. Judging took place in London by The Academy of Chocolate and by a panel of international journalists, chefs and experts in chocolate and food.

Our 2011 Academy of Chocolate Award winning chocolates are:

Peru Pangoa 70% — Pure origin from the Andean region. A chocolate which is fruity and light with a fresh finish

Xoconusco 72% — A velvet ganache in a thin crisp shell made with the single origin Mexican Criollo Cocoa

VN1 — A 70% dark chocolate mousse ganache entirely made using our GTA 3-Star Award winning single origin chocolate from Ben Tre, Vietnam

VN2 — A 40% Milk chocolate mousse ganache entirely made using our GTA 3-Star Award winning single origin chocolate from Ben Tre, Vietnam
