After getting the bronze award in 2015 at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London, Davao-made Malagos chocolate stepped its game up and won the silver award this time in the same competition.
Malagos Premium 100% Unsweetened Chocolate bagged the silver prize during the Academy of Chocolate’s Eighth Golden Bean Awards for the Drinking Chocolate (plain) category.
The same honor was given to Akesson’s Organic, specifically to its 75% Brazil Choc Drops Drinking Chocolate; and to Pump Street Bakery for its Single Origin Drinking Chocolat. Both chocolate makers are from United Kingdom.
The gold award was given to Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate from California.
The Academy of Chocolate was founded in 2005 by five of Britain's leading chocolate professionals to push for better chocolate and promote awareness on the differences between fine chocolates and mass-produced chocolate confectionery.
The award is Malagos Agri-Ventures Corp.’s third international recognition.
