World Chocolate Masters


The World Chocolate Masters is the world’s premier culinary competition devoted solely to the art of chocolate. The international competition initiated and sponsored by Barry Callebaut recognizes and celebrates the chocolate professionals’ innovation, artistry and technical skills. Contestants are chosen for their flair and competence – talents that are put to the test in front of an international panel of food experts.

The “Oscar” in chocolate making
The World Chocolate Masters was initiated in 2004. It brought together two of the gourmet profession’s most prestigious competitions: the “Grand Prix International de la Chocolaterie” organized in France by Cacao Barry and the “International Belgian Chocolate Award” organized by Callebaut in Belgium.
