The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the 2018 European Bean-to-bar Competition, which was judged in Amsterdam, Netherlands, May 10 – June 11, 2018 at the Hilton Amsterdam.
The judging panel included regular European judges, along with pastry chefs, restaurateurs, journalists and other specialists from the local area and members of our international Grand Jury panel.
The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, following an initial technical Selection round and two days of Main round judging. The Finalists are the nominations from which the Grand Jury select the prize winners, through private voting. The Grand Jury follow strict rules, which you can read here (PDF).
While listing as a Grand Jury Finalist is an achievement in itself, it does not necessarily indicate that the entry will receive a prize.
