Our commitment to learning & development in the Australian Chocolate industry

The Sydney Royal Chocolate Competition is passionate about supporting the Australian Chocolate Industry through learning and development.

The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW is a not-for-profit organisation that has been an influential force in the direction and development of Australian agriculture through competitions, education and events since its foundation in 1822. Today, through the Sydney Royal Chocolate Competition, we are promoting and rewarding excellence in the future of Australian Chocolate manufacturing.


The Sydney Royal Chocolate Competition is committed to attracting the very best professionals as Judges and Stewards providing an excellent environment for networking and professional development to all participants, resulting in the benefits for the industry at large.
