The Grand Final, during Sirha Lyon on 20the and 21st January 2023, will allow the 20 selected international teams to present their know-how, creativity and culture around a common theme.
SUSTAINABLE PASTRY IN THE HEART OF THE GRAND FINAL
for his 18the edition, the Pastry World Cup accompanies and encourages changes in the sector, in the face of current ecological and social problems. This year, the candidates will have to work on the theme “climate change”.
The Pastry World Cup, playing its role as influencer and example, honors the promotion of a more sustainable, responsible and respectful pastry with the environment. This approach is reflected in the prohibition of using additives and colorants in all tests, the choice of selected raw materials among partners who care to control their origins and production methods, and also by the evaluation during the competition of the consistency between the weighing and the recipes sent by the teams. Waste sorting is mandatory and all products processed and used during the two days of competition will be donated to associations.
The teams must, as soon as they start training, implement concrete actions and communicate them to the International Organizing Committee (IOC) which will then award one of them the special eco-responsible award.
“The global pastry industry is at a crossroads. It could be said that he has never been more attentive to taste than to appearances. To successfully navigate this era and paradigm shift, and at the exact same moment that confectionery is reaching the peak of popularity on social media and prime time television shows, The Pastry La Copa del Mundo needed to take a more socially and environmentally responsible approach.” – Pierre Hermé, president of the Pastry World Cup.
