Calgary's Cococo Chocolatiers Takes Home Silver from this Year's International Chocolate Awards held in London
This is not the first time Cococo Chocolatiers has found success on the International podium
It is already a very Merry Christmas at Cococo Chocolatiers, the Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut® company, because the company just learned that at this week’s 2014 International Chocolate Awards in London, England, their Honey Anise milk chocolate creation won Silver.
"Earlier this year we were honoured by a whopping six medals from the Canadian round of the International competition. Those wins gave us the ability to submit entries to the worldwide Grand Jury and be judged again on the International stage” says Kristen Halpen, Marketing Manager at Cococo Chocolatiers – owners of Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut®. “We’re proud even to compete at the International level, which in itself is a big accomplishment for an independent Canadian company. But to win Silver against the biggest and best in the world is both great fun and great recognition”.
This is not the first time that Cococo Chocolatiers has found success on the International podium. In 2012, Cococo also won Silver at the International Chocolate Awards for its Rosemary Fusion Tablette bar, which quickly become a big seller in their 33 Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut® retail shops.
Four of this year’s award-winning chocolates from the Canadian competition can be found in a boxed collection called, The Twelve, also available in those 33 retail stores.
