Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 20, 2016
Crio Bru today announced winning three awards for its new Durci Taino 70% artisan confection in the 2016 CHOCOLATE BAR AWARDS competition. This Durci bar took Bronze for Best Dark Chocolate and Best Graphic Design, as well as Silver for Best Packaging. The International Chocolate Salon, a premier international body honoring premium chocolates and confections, holds this annual competition.
“We are honored to bring home multiple awards with our first entrant to this world leading competition,” states Dr. Eric Durtschi, CEO for Crio Bru and creator of the Durci premium chocolate bar. “Applying our extreme expertise in the cocoa industry to this new line of artisan chocolate is a natural step following our hugely successful line up of brewed cocoa beverages.”
The International Chocolate Salon Awards for the 2016 CHOCOLATE BAR AWARDS are based on the votes of the Judging Panel, consisting of National and Regional Magazines, Newspaper and Blog Editors, plus Topic Experts, Local Chefs and Food Gurus.
Crio Bru plays a key role in the community and agricultural development of emerging cocoa suppliers along the equator including Peru, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Ghana, Venezuela, and Dominican Republic. Crio Bru’s patented process takes the cocoa bean to new levels of flavor by controlling five key elements: variety, soil, fermentation, drying, and climate. The result is a consistently one of a kind artisan cocoa experience with a wide variety of flavors.
With headquarters in Utah, increased production soon goes online in Crio’s new Santa Barbara, CA facility. Highlighted in Consumer Reports, Forbes and on Shark Tank, the company is a winner in the national Grow America startup competition. See more about the company on YouTube.
Durci Chocolate Bars may be found at a growing list of fine confection shops or purchased online.
