The local chocolatier wins prestigious awards from the Academy of Chocolate and the International Chocolate Awards World Finals

Local chocolatier Auro Chocolate brought home two new international awards from the International Chocolate Awards and the Academy of Chocolate for their single-origin, bean-to-bar artisanal chocolate.

Auro bagged the Shining Bright Award from the Academy of Chocolate under the Special Awards 2020 category, a new award given only to 4 chocolate producers among 50 international entries that scored high across different categories.

The prestigious awards ceremony went virtual for the first time this year, due to the pandemic. It is usually held at the Claridge’s Hotel in London’s Mayfair.

Auro also gained recognition at the 2020-2021 International Chocolate Awards World Finals virtual ceremony on Monday, May 10.

Auro scored a Silver Award for their 50% regal single-varietal dark milk chocolate in the plain/origin milk chocolate bars category, over entries from Colombia, Denmark, Peru, Norway, France, Sweden, and Peru, which bagged gold this year.

The Filipino chocolatier received seven gold medals at the 2020 UK Great Taste Awards in September 2020 and five gold medals at the International Chocolate Awards in October 2020. – Rappler.com
