Malagos Chocolate bagged two awards from the internationally-acclaimed group, Academy of Chocolate.

The Academy of Chocolate, which was founded in Britain by some of the world’s leading chocolate professionals, gives recognition to excellent chocolate under the following categories: bars, drinking chocolate, filled chocolate, spreads, and packaging. Every year, they come together to award chocolate makers that get behind their mission: to produce and promote fine, properly-sourced chocolate instead of mass-produced confectioneries that take over many grocery stores worldwide. 

 


 

The Academy of Chocolate’s recently released results include one of our finest Philippine-made chocolates that hail from Davao: Malagos Chocolate! Their Malagos 65% Dark Chocolate and Malagos 72% Dark Chocolate bars bagged bronze awards under the Tree to Bar category—one that recognizes Malagos Chocolate for creating chocolate from locally-grown or sourced cacao beans.

 

It doesn’t stop there—the 100% Unsweetened Malagos Chocolate also took home a silver award in the Drinking Chocolate category.

 

The mother-and-son duo, Charita and Rex Puentespina, has always stood behind their philosophy of ethically- and sustainably-produced chocolate. There is no better time to celebrate the world-class quality of our local ingredients, as well as the hard work that’s been put in to put local chocolate at the forefront.
