What to expect?

The World Chocolate Masters is a worldwide competition, a celebrated community of chefs and a creative outlet for the whole culinary world to see. From guidance to perseverance: uncover chocolate creativity at its finest.

A JURY OF PROFESSIONALS & INDUSTRY LEADERS

A professional jury will be composed in all 20 countries – with every jury member being a leading expert in the culinary and/or gastronomy industry. In each country, a jury president will be assigned to coordinate, guide and control all jury members to play it 100% fair. Per national selection, the contestant with the highest score will be awarded National Chocolate Master and will represent his or her country during the World Final in 2021.

A GLOBAL AUDIENCE

Why we talk about the biggest chocolate stage on earth? We’ll, our numbers don’t lie. More than 10 million chocolate fans, professionals and market leaders have watched and connected with us during last edition’s #WCM_Futropolis. It is a truly unique experience viewed around the globe and an enriching chef’s journey among qualified peers.

“The World Chocolate Masters is more than a culinary competition. It’s an incredible journey during which chefs push themselves beyond the limit.”
