We’re pleased to share that many Ecole Chocolat graduates have won International Chocolate Awards in their regional competitions, including Americas & Asia Pacific, Canadian and British National Competitions.
Background about the International Chocolate Awards
“The International Chocolate Awards is an independent competition recognising excellence in fine chocolate making and in the products made with fine chocolate. As the World’s only fully independent international fine chocolate competition, we aim to support companies producing fine chocolate and chocolatiers, small companies and artisans working with fine chocolate. By helping these markets to grow and develop, we also aim to support the farmers that grow fine cacao”.

Various regional competitions are held throughout the world during the year, with awards given at regional levels. The final step is the World Final, which is usually held in London, England in October.
