We won! An this year it’s a Silver Medal for our ‘Cashew, sesame and Papua New Guinea 35% Praline’ chocolate. It’s as yummy as it sounds.
We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious honour from the Academy up against which was some of the stiffest competition. 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. Sentiments that we all agree with.
The Academy of Chocolate defines fine chocolate as:
- containing no vegetable fat other than cocoa butter
- with a minimum cocoa content of: Dark 60%; Milk 30%; White 30% (cocoa butter)
- where the quality, provenance and treatment of the cocoa beans have been considered
- containing no artificial additives such as vanillin, flavourings, colourings, preservatives, etc.
Members of the Academy are committed to ethically sourced chocolate.
We enjoyed taking part in the awards which were held in London earlier this year, winning is the ‘chocolate’ icing on the cake.
