Suffolk’s Pump Street Bakery Chocolate received four medals, including a Gold for its Madagascar Milk 58% bar, while London-based Åkesson’s also won Gold for its Madagascar 75% Trinitario Cocoa & “Wild” Voatsiperifery pepper bar.

The winners were announced during The Chocolate Show, at London’s Olympia, with the Grand Jury giving out 33 Bronzes, 85 Silvers and 36 Golds.

The Porcelana dark chocolate bar from the USA’s Rogue Chocolatier and a Piura milk bar from Peru’s Cacaosuyo were deemed to be jointly Best in Competition.
