The stand promises to be a feast for both the eyes and taste buds, offering an insight into every aspect of chocolate production from the raw ingredients to the highly refined praline, from internationally renowned brand to small local artisan.
The World Expo opened on 1 May 2010 and runs until 31 October 2010. The first demonstrations will be conducted by chocolatiers Philippe Vancayseele from Barry Callebaut, Olivier Demol from Neuhaus and Thierry Muret from Godiva.
