Last week saw the 2017 Edition of the International Cocoa Awards, part of the Cocoa of Excellence Programme, celebrated as part of the Salon du Chocolat, Paris. Samantha Collins, Communications Specialist, reports.
Huge international crowds gathered in Paris last week at the Salon du Chocolat – a testament to the enduing love affair the world has with chocolate. Show-stopping chocolate sculptures took their place beside classical chocolate fountains while on the centre stage, models showed off high-end chocolate fashion.
Of course, the best way to appreciate chocolate is not to wear it, but to taste it and the world’s best chocolate makers did not disappoint with a myriad of mouthwatering chocolate in every size, shape, flavour and colour you can imagine. Also on display, was the diversity of shapes, colours and flavours of the very foundation of the chocolate we love to eat – the cocoa beans.
