Becomes the only award-winning chocolate in Asia Pacific to have sustainability at the core of its product offering
Chennai-based start-up Kocoatrait has been awarded a Silver in the Asia Pacific competition of the International Chocolate Awards (ICA) held recently in Hong Kong. This makes Kocoatrait the only award-winning chocolate in the Asia Pacific to have sustainability at the core of its product offering. With this award/recognition consumers can be sure that sustainable chocolates can also win awards focussed on taste and flavour.
The silver award-winning chocolate from Kocoatrait (Masala Chai) has been crafted from bean to bar by Poonam Chordia in Chennai using Indian cacao, non-refined sugar (muscovado), and real flavour ingredients. What makes this chocolate special is the delicate balance of flavours of all the spices used (Ginger, Cardamom & Black Pepper), in a well-balanced 64% dark chocolate with low to medium acidity, controlled astringency, and limited bitterness matching the experience of Indian masala chai.
“This is how we differentiate from mass market chocolates who understandably rely on flavour oils to add flavor to their chocolate experience. Indian chocolate lovers, now for the 1st time, have the option to enjoy award-winning chocolates while keeping their chocolate experience paper/plastic free, planet friendly, and zero waste,” said Poonam Chordia, Co-Founder, Kocoatrait Chocolates.
