Welcome to the World Chocolate Masters, the only competition in the world dedicated to the individual creativity of chocolatiers and pastry chefs with chocolate. It's an amazing platform for upcoming chefs from all over the globe to share their talent with the world.


More than ever, this 7th edition will focus on innovation and creativity, since the world of gastronomy changes at an incredible pace. This edition's theme 'Futropolis' challenges all finalists to think about the future of chocolate gastronomy.
More specific, how the cities of the future will influence the way we live, consume, make choices... and enjoy chocolate.


The jury specifically will be a search for excitingly innovative taste combinations with chocolate, forward-thinking patisserie concepts and a design language that will define tomorrow's commercial patisserie and chocolaterie presentations. Yet it will also be looking for concepts that reduce our ecological footprint, bring healthier food to the table and give new impulses to local traditions. Changing consumer preferences, trends and new technology will be at the heart of the creative challenges, showcased by the finalists.
