New Edition 2020/21.
World Chocolate Masters: the only competition on the planet dedicated to pushing the boundaries of chocolate creativity. It’s the ultimate stage for upcoming chefs from all over the globe to share their chocolate talent and connect with fans, professionals and industry leaders worldwide.
This edition, The World Chocolate Masters challenges chocolate artisans to reconsider the past and create a bright future fuelled by design, science and technology. Think like a designer, act like an entrepreneur and create like a master using Cacao Barry’s collaborative inputs from scientists and nutritionists.
With all our social, political, financial and societal systems under pressure, many people feel like we’ve lost track. At the same time, newer generations are standing up to change the world in a radical way. Through science, technology, creativity and entrepreneurship, a new path can be crafted.
The 8th edition’s theme is born from the divide between apocalyptic visions and the rise of a bright new optimism. How does this duality impact the way we live, create, connect and enjoy chocolate? What’s the future of indulgence?
artisans+technology+design shape tomorrow´s chocolate
