Cocoa of Excellence is the entry point for farmers to participate in the Salon du Chocolat's International Cocoa Awards, the only competition of its kind rewarding the work of cocoa farmers and celebrating the diversity of cocoa flavors.

The Excellence Award in Cocoa Beans, the first ever awarded to Vietnam, is the result of 4 years of intense R&D work on fermentation and drying started by a dedicated team in 2009 with the intention of creating a new origin chocolate from high-quality beans.
