1. This is the greatest chocolate championship in the world
The challenges have never been more demanding and the competition has never been fiercer. Will everyone finish his or her projects on time? Who will crack under the immense pressure of the competition? Will every showpiece arrive at the display area in one piece? Or will we only get to see the remnants and find its designer in ruins? There’s only one way to find out...
2. A unique opportunity to learn about new trends and techniques
This year’s ‘Inspiration from Nature’ theme leaves a lot of room for interpretation, enabling finalists to defy all rules and conventions in the world of chocolate, encouraging them to show the entire world their view on what the future role of chocolate should be. The finalists also have to face all-new competition challenges that meet the market trends of tomorrow, keeping the World Chocolate Masters firmly in the saddle as the world’s major catalyst for radical innovation in the sector.
