BBC Good Food Producers Bursary Award 2015
We were delighted to have won a BBC Good Food Show Bursary Award to exhibit at the BBC Good Food Show Winter in Birmingham – one of the biggest food and drink shows in the country, and our biggest event to date!
These awards offer a free stand to outstanding new producers of speciality food and drink who would otherwise struggle to exhibit at big shows and events like the BBC Good Food Show. The bursaries are an incredible opportunity for young companies to attend a fantastic show which they otherwise wouldn’t be able to consider, and are the Shows’ way of rewarding small producers for their passion and dedication.
We were very grateful for this opportunity, and would like to thank everyone involved with the Bursary Awards for their guidance and support.
International Chocolate Awards
The International Chocolate Awards is an independent competition recognising excellence in fine chocolate making and in the products made with fine chocolate.
The Awards were founded in 2012 and are run by a group of independent international partners based in the UK, Italy and the USA, with years of experience tasting and evaluating chocolate and running fine chocolate related events.
By making consumers more aware of the hard work and craft that goes into the best fine chocolate products, the International Chocolate Awards helps the fine chocolate industry to grow and develop in established regions as well as new markets. By helping to identify the best chocolate made with the best cacao, they hope to help chocolate makers, chocolatiers and cacao farmers continue to succeed at producing the world’s best fine cacao and fine chocolate.
We entered our drinking chocolates into the World Drinking Chocolate Competition, the judging for which took place at the Schokolade Gourmet Festival in Germany.
Gold – Gianduja Drinking Chocolate
Silver – House Blend Drinking Chocolate
