Australian cocoa beans named as finalist at World Cocoa Awards in Paris
October 28, 2015
All the hard work is paying off! Daintree Cocoa Pty Ltd has been named as a finalist at the 2015 World Cocoa Awards in Paris, France. The cocoa beans entered by Daintree Cocoa Pty Ltd came from the Puglisi's cocoa plantation at Whyanbeel, just north of Mossman in Tropical Far North Queensland, not far from the Heritage protected Daintree Rainforest.
This is a tremendous achievement for Australia, Daintree Cocoa Pty Ltd, and especially for the Puglisi family who are one of Australia's original cocoa pioneers. This is the first time Australia participated in the World Cocoa Awards, and it is an honour to be rubbing shoulders with some very well established and highly regarded cocoa producing countries from around the world.
Good quality cocoa beans are the very foundation of good quality chocolate. So it's no wonder Australian origin chocolate is already attracting the attention of some high profile chefs and chocolatiers, especially around Australia.
Congratulations from QCIDA to Daintree Cocoa Pty Ltd and the Puglisi family.
