The cooperative currently has over 200 acres of organic cocoa farms and the chief objective is ensuring that farmers are fairly rewarded for their hard work and that cocoa farming and chocolate production use sustainable methods.
Launched in 2005, the prestigious Academy of Chocolate awards sought to identify, recognise and showcase the world’s most talented chocolate producers and finest chocolates.
Held in London, judges deliberate over key categories including Bean to Bar, Tree to Bar, Flavoured, Milk and White Bars, Filled chocolates, Spreads and Packaging.
Further judging by a Supreme Jury considers Gold winners and determines Special Award winners.
The awards are judged by leading chocolatiers, producers, journalists, bloggers, food writers, and other chocolate experts from across the industry.
But due to enforced COVID-19 restrictions, the Tree to Bar and Bean to Bar entries have been judged separately this year with the remaining categories scheduled for judging in October.
