Malagos Chocolate Wins International Recognition Yet Again

They're now recognized as one of the best in the world!

(SPOT.ph) When people talk about the best local chocolate, you can be sure that Malagos Chocolate will come up. The proudly Davao-born chocolate has been winning accolades since they started in 2003, and they now have another international recognition to add to the list. The cacao produced by Puentespina Farm, maker of Malagos Chocolate, was recognized as Heirloom Cacao on January 12 by the Heirloom Ca­cao Preservation Fund, a non-profit organization that works in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture.

The designation is given to a small group of farmers who are recognized, according to the official Heirloom Cacao Preservation website, for growing "Theobroma cacao trees that produce the most high quality, flavorful chocolate." Simply put, Puentespina Farm is now recognized officially and internationally for producing some of the best cacao beans around—which means pretty damn good chocolate bars.

Gaining the recognition is no easy feat: The Puentespina Farm produces Trinitario cacao beans, which they submitted to the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Fund for tasting, on-site sampling, and USDA genetic testing. They now join 15 other farms with the recognition, with only one other Asian country (Vietnam) on the list. Congratulations, Malagos!
