Paris : the 20th Salon du Chocolat Anniversary edition
An exceptionnal anniversary
In Paris, 20 years ago, the first Salon du Chocolat was born.
It all started with two passionate entrepreneurs who were in love with chocolate and each other, and a project that everyone considered a crazy idea: create an event dedicated entirely to an everyday food. But they had a strong desire and firm belief in the market and its professionals, both of which did not receive the exposure they deserved.
Now, 20 years on, the show is a resounding success both in France and around the world, helping to promote knowledge of and expertise in chocolate, from the bean to the bar, from producer countries to consumers.
Like every adventure, it is first and foremost a human one, and Sylvie Douce and François Jeantet will be celebrating this big anniversary with the people who have supported them over the past 20 years.
A 20th anniversary celebration equal to the scope of this rare and precious food’s importance worldwide
20 years, 20,000 sq. m of chocolate on two levels!
