Last night the results of the prestigious Academy of Chocolate Awards were announced and we were delighted to discover that eleven of the bars that we currently stock won awards.
Most exciting for us was the fact that Hogarth Craft Chocolate picked up two silvers for their Haiti and Peru bars and a GOLD for their Gianduia. It's amazing to see New Zealand being put so firmly on the craft chocolate map.
Congratulations to all the winners and of course to the farmers who work so hard to produce the beautiful cacao.
