International Chocolate Awards (UK)

The ‘Maralumi Milk 47%’ chocolate bar was awarded a Gold Medal at the International Chocolate Awards, in October 2012. ‘Los Anconès’ and Ivory chocolate bars were awarded a silver medal.

La Manufacture Cluizel was granted (special Awards) a gold medal for its ‘Organic Los Anconès’ chocolate bar, in the following 3 categories:

- Chocolate Maker
- Directly traded cacao
- Organic

These awards are granted by the members of the International Chocolate Awards and a jury of experts (chefs, food writers, chocolate professionals, etc.) chosen to choose the best chocolates among the large selection that is presented.

Created in 2012, the association has a variety of goals, in particular that of encouraging chocolate makers to develop fairer and more equitable relationships with plantations. It is the development of the Academy of Chocolate, which granted a gold medal, to ‘Organic 67% Los Anconès', Coffee Dark chocolate and '47% Maralumi Milk’ chocolate bars, back in 2011. Orange peel and Dark chocolate, and 85% Dark chocolate bars were respectively awarded Silver and Bronze medals.
