Chocolate Week, the nation’s favourite themed week, returns for a 12th consecutive year, celebrating the world of fine chocolate from 10th to 16th October, 2016. The week culminates with The Chocolate Show London at Olympia National Hall from 14th to 16th October, bringing the best of the industry together all under one roof.
Hundreds of events are expected this Chocolate Week around the UK, with the country’s top chocolatiers and chocolate companies, as well as hotels, bars and restaurants celebrating by hosting talks, tastings, demonstrations and sampling, as well as creating exclusive products, new launches, offers, chocolate meals, cocktails and recipes using some of the best chocolate brands from around the world.
Chocolate Week aims to promote fine flavour chocolate, the independent artisan chocolatiers and the chocolate companies who work in direct partnership with cocoa farmers, encouraging consumers to pay a fairer price for their chocolate.
Chocolate Week is organised by Sylvie Douce and François Jeantet, founders and organizers of the Salon du Chocolat around the world including The Chocolate Show London.
For the fourth edition of the Chocolate Show London, 20,000 chocolate fans are expected to flock to the show to see the best UK chocolate companies exhibiting alongside exciting international brands, plus demonstrations, talks and hands-on workshops from the UK’s top chocolatiers.
Salon du Chocolat has enormous pedigree in the chocolate industry. Created in Paris, France back in 1994, the event progressively conquered the major French and international cities (New York, Tokyo, Moscow, Beijing, Shanghai, Cairo, Salvador da Bahia, Lima, Seoul, Bologna, Zurich, Brussels, Beirut, Cologne, London, Milan). Over 21 years, the Salon du Chocolat has organized 193 shows in 32 cities around the world, attracted 7.6 million visitors and is very excited to be returning to London this October.
