Academy members meet to taste, discuss, demonstrate and debate issues regarding sourcing, transparency and the journey from bean to bar. Members of the public and chocolate lovers are welcome to attend. For more information on our events, take a look at our events page.
We define fine chocolate as:
- Containing no vegetable fat other than cocoa butter
- With a minimum cocoa content of: Dark 60%; Milk 30%; White 30% (cocoa butter).
- Where the quality, provenance and treatment of the cocoa beans have been considered
- Containing no artificial additives such as vanillin, flavourings, colourings, preservatives, etc.
Members of the Academy are committed to ethically sourced chocolate.
