Message from Elias Läderach


Together, we can shape a new tomorrow after COVID 19.

In unprecedented times like these, the World Chocolate Masters, Cacao Barry, the Chocolate Academy and our chefs’ community express their full support to everyone contributing to fighting this global crisis. The best way to do this is to #StayHome, #StaySafe and stopping the virus to spread. 


For many among us, it means temporarily closing their businesses or exploring alternative ways to keep supporting customers with delivery or take-outs. We have seen what the creative power of chefs around the world is capable of – and that in itself is heart-warming! A special call out to all chefs – previous and new contestants, and all chefs in general to keep doing what you do best: #StayCreative


Let’s use this time to rethink what tomorrow could be like. Let’s stand united, share ideas online and keep nourishing our passion. Now is the time to think more creatively than ever and start to shape the face of #Tomorrow.


We wish you good health!
