The Cacao and Chocolate Salon, the most important and largest fair in Peru dedicated exclusively to cacao, cocoa and chocolate products, returns to Lima in July 2019.
At its beginnings in 2010 the yearly event mainly offered a platform to producers, manufacturers, entrepreneurs and exporters for establishing contacts and promoting Peruvian cacao and its derivatives in domestic and international markets. But over the years the Cacao and Chocolate Salon additionally became increasingly popular with the general public.
So next to conferences, networking rounds and lectures, the fair celebrates and showcases the huge variety of local cacao beans - one of the best tasting and finest in the world – and products made with them where visitors are not only able to learn more about Peru’s cacao and the country’s finest chocolate products, but can also meet Peruvian cacao growers, taste different raw and roasted cocoa beans and indulge in the culinary delights of a wide assortment of Peruvian cocoa products and chocolate creations.
Highlights of the 2019 Cacao and Chocolate Salon surely will be a replica of a chocolate factory, a fashion show with clothes made of chocolate, the 5th National Peruvian Chocolate Competition and the Chocolate Sculpture Competition. And children will have fun at the Choco Kids area.
Guest country is the US, one of the main buyers of Peruvian cacao beans.
The Cacao and Chocolate Salon 2019 will celebrate its 10th birthday with an expected 200 national exhibitors and 20,000 visitors.
A must for all sweet teeth!
