The 2019 Benelux Chocolatier Competition is for chocolatier products and flavoured bars from chocolatiers and chocolate companies based in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

The Chocolatier competitions focus on the craft and skill of small-scale chocolatiers who work with chocolate couverture and flavouring ingredients to create fine chocolate bars, bonbons and spreads. This includes products from Bean-to-bar makers who also produce bonbons and spreads.

Winners will pass through to the World Final in Florence, in October 2019.


This competition is open to all companies with their headquarters or main base in Belgium, the Netherlands or Luxembourg for flavoured bars made from couverture, filled chocolates and spreads.

This is a Chocolatier competition for all categories EXCEPT for Plain/origin and Flavoured dark, milk and white bars made by Bean-to-Bar chocolate makers. These products are judged at the regional Bean-to-Bar competition, held in: Denmark.

The admission fee for this competition is EUR €55 and the fee for each entry is EUR €45. Prices will be converted into local currency by your credit card company, if required.
