    Bohol’s Dalareich Food Products and Davao’s Auro Cacao win the first prize, for the first time, in the Academy of Chocolate Awards (AOC) 2019.

    London’s prestigious Academy conferred gold prizes to both chocolate-makers with their own 100% unsweetened chocolate entries under the “Drinking Chocolate: Plain, for milk-based drinks” category.

    Other Filipino chocolate brands Malagos Agri-Ventures Corp., MS3 Agri-Ventures, and Theo and Philo Artisan Chocolates also brought victory to the country, impressing the board of judges, which includes leading chocolatiers and prominent food writers and bloggers.

    Five bronze awards were given to Malagos’ chocolate entries, while three bronze awards and one silver to MS3.

    Seven entries of Theo and Philo—which are mostly 65% dark chocolates with healthy add-ons like black sesame, green mango, cashew—also received bronze and silver awards.

    Winners were recognized among over 1,000 entries from different countries. All entries were evaluated based on the appearance, aroma, flavor, length, and complexity in a thorough deliberation that took over 12 weeks.

    The Academy of Chocolate was founded in 2005 by five of Britain’s leading chocolate professionals, united in the belief that eating fine chocolate is one of life’s great pleasures.
