By Aaron Humes: Want some chocolate?
In the Americas, they come no better than the Belize Chocolate Company based in Ambergris Caye, rated gold for cocoa butter and silver for cocoa powder at the 2022 International Chocolate Awards for the Americas region.
Belize Chocolate Company established in 2007, is a family-owned bean-to-bar craft chocolate manufacturer based on Ambergris Caye, owned by Chris and Jo Beaumont. They process organic, direct-trade cacao beans from small family farms in the Toledo district of Belize. Their products include a range of 70 percent dark chocolate with inclusions, milk and white chocolate, handmade truffles and bonbons, chocolate beauty products and other value-added merchandise which they sell in their two chocolate boutiques in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker.
The prestigious International Chocolate Awards founded in 2012 is an independent competition recognizing excellence in fine chocolate making. As the World’s only fully independent international fine chocolate competition, their aim is to support companies producing fine chocolate. By helping these markets to grow and develop, they also aim to support the farmers that grow fine cacao. This year the Belize Chocolate Company decided to enter their cocoa butter and cocoa powder which they use in a variety of their chocolate products and drinks. The 2022 Americas competition saw a record number of entries from North and Latin America and the Caribbean with over 800 products entered by 130 chocolate companies from 16 different countries.
The owners would like to thank the International Chocolate Awards for their promotion and support of the fine chocolate industry, and for all their customers for their continued support and look forward to producing more award-winning Belizean chocolate.
