The International Chocolate Awards announced the winners of the 2019 Americas Bean-to-Bar and Chocolatier Competition, hosted in New York.
With chocolate makers and chocolatiers from North, Central, and South America competing in this year’s event, Tucson-based Monsoon Chocolate won 14 awards.
“There aren’t that many chocolatiers out there who also manufacture their own chocolate — so I think that helps distinguish us,” said Adam Krantz, head chocolate maker, chocolatier, and founder of Monsoon Chocolate. “We’re very dedicated to our craft and we have uncompromising standards.”
Monsoon was recognized with a total of four bronze, seven silver, one gold, and two special awards
