The International Chocolate Awards have officially sponsored the second national Peruvian Chocolate Competition.
The competition asks contestants to deliver their samples to Lima´s ´´Cocoa and Chocolate Salon´´ by July 4th, 2016.
Samples will be judged based on the packaging of the product, the actual selection of chocolate, and the taste that it produces. There are various categories to which producers may submit their samples, some including: original chocolate bars and flavored chocolate bars.
The competition seeks to esteem the enterprises and organizations of Peru that produce high quality chocolate and other cocoa products. Because Peru is a rising cocoa producer, winning this competition is a high honor that will catapult producers in the cocoa industry.
Awards will be handed out the evening of July 9th at the Lima Convention Center. The committee that orchestrated this event is comprised of people from a variety of organizations, ranging from the Peruvian Association of Cocoa Producers to Peru´s Exports and Tourism Promotion Board.
