The sweet taste of victory for award winning Toowoomba confectioner.

A Toowoomba chocolatier has beaten culinary masters from across the nation, to win the coveted Champion Australian Small Producer title, at the prestigious Australian Food Awards.

Trevor Smith of 'Metiisto Artisan Chocolate' took out the top gong at last night’s awards in Melbourne, defeating everyone from cattle and dairy farmers to olive oil and pate' makers, with his refined array of milk and dark chockie creations.

Operating from a tiny shed in a Toowoomba industrial estate, Trevor and his wife Magdalena make all the chocolate by hand themselves, using cacao beans from the Solomon Islands.
