WORLD CHAMPIONS GELATO BETWEEN INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABILITY

The big supporters of the Italian “fabulous team” of Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, an event organized by SIGEPItalian Exhibition Group (IEG) and Gelato e Cultura, from 19 to 21 January 2020 in the South Hall of the 41st International Trade Show of Artisan Gelato, Pastry, Bakery and the Coffee World – reveal trends and strategies to ride the wave of this and the coming seasons.

“In Italy, a growing trend is definitely linked to conscious consumerism, a return to the origins where everybody is looking for high-quality, authentic and local products – reveals Marco Casol, Managing Director of PreGel -. For instance, the IGP Hazelnut from Piedmont and pure Pistachio are booming, a timeless trend for PreGel is Zabajone. When we had the opportunity to support the Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, we did not hesitate to put ourselves at the forefront, to support research and development of the best flavors in the world. We want to give voice to the champions in the race: we have just launched a digital project that presents through exclusive recipes the passion and professionalism of the Gelato Champions (you find the first recipe here https://pregel.it/gelato-world-cup/). Handcrafted fresh gelato is a symbol of goodness, tradition and genuineness: we want and must represent it in every part of the world, especially in countries with the greatest potential for growth.”

The demand for chocolate is undergoing a revolution, and not just because of the recommendations of nutritionists. If its enhancement as an indispensable raw material started inside the restaurants, today gelato chefs and consumers clearly perceive the difference with products made from cocoa powder – explains Igor Maiellano, Director Italia Valrhona –. We were the first to introduce, through the Grands Crus, the concept of territoriality. In the Italian market, P125 ce de Guanaja, with reduced cocoa butter content, and Tulakalum, free of lecithin, win. We believed from the beginning in the Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria. The race has grown in all aspects and in 2020, in addition to the development of new products that marry the requests of champions, curious and courageous by definition, we wanted to include the latest brands entered in the group: Sosa Ingredientes and Norohy Vanilla. Valrhona has always been a platform for services, support and training for artisans.”

Gelateria, pastry, baking and dining live together more and more closely, a trend that is recorded not only within professional kitchens. Electrolux Professional has been supporting Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria since the first edition, and thanks to the dialogue with the champions, SkyChillS was born. It’s a new concept of blast freezer, able to making both “cold” and “hot” – says Andrea Grandi, Head of Cook&Chill, Electrolux Professional Italy -. By incorporating five machines in less than 1sqm, it optimizes the space in laboratory and reducing the investment in other equipment. It is a complete working system: from leavening cell to firm leavening, it thaws quickly, it prepares ready chocolate to transfer into temperator; it becomes a specific machine for the gelato parlour, it can produce yogurt too. It still manages night-time productivity, including yeasts, and syncs with the SkyLine oven, so that the latter automatically goes into preheat”.

Gelato numbers

We find artisan gelato in 76 countries, all the five continents. Europe is at the forefront, the main markets are Italy, Germany, Spain and Poland. Emerging countries in demand are Austria, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, the spread is also increasingly widespread in Eastern European markets. In Europe, gelato sales reached 9 billion euros, representing 60% of the world market. Growth is constant, at a rate of 4% per annum; 300,000 employees.

In Italy there are about 39,000 gelato shops (10,000 specialized and 29,000 bars and pastry shops which produce and sell artisan gelato). They employ about 150,000 people and achieve a turnover of 2.7 billion euros, equivalent to almost 30% of the European market. In Germany, on the other hand, there are 9,000 gelato parlours (3,300 are pure gelato parlours), 2,000 are in Spain and 1,800 in Poland. As for the rest of the world, there are over 40,000 gelato parlours. Argentina, USA and Brazil are leading the way, China, Korea, Malaysia and Australia are among the most interesting growing markets. The global turnover exceeds 15 billion euros.

GELATO WORLD CUP: BIRTH OF THE ITALIAN AND FRENCH CLUBS

THE HOUSES OF CHAMPIONS ARE BORN: THEY WILL SUPPORT THE ITALIAN AND FRENCH TEAMS AND THEY WILL ORGANIZE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

Two new milestones for Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, event organized by SIGEP – Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) and Gelato & Cultura from 19 to 21 January 2020 at the South Hall of the 41st International Trade Show of Artisan Gelato, Pastry, Bakery and the Coffee World. Italy and France, which have won in a respectful and alternative way the various editions, in 2020 for the first time in many years will finally face each other vis-à-vis. And they’ll have their own “Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria” clubs. Both of them have been established just a few days ago.

An important goal has finally been achieved” says Pierpaolo Magni, award-winning gelato and pastry chef, world-champion and newly elected President of Club Italia. On 12 June, the founders met at Cast Alimenti: the President is Pierpaolo Magni, the VP is Amelio Mazzella, and in the group there are Leonardo Ceschin, Antonio Capuano, Luigi Tirabassi, Gaetano Mignano, Stefano Venier, Cesare Puglisi of Editrade and Emanuela Balestrino of Chiriotti.

“The House of Champions is now ‘reality’,” continues Magni, “we are proud to be Italian and to represent our excellence. We are united to support the champions of today and tomorrow. We will contribute in terms of culture, know-how, experience”. A precious heritage that will make a difference in the long and challenging preparation of the Italian team, represented on the day of the foundation by chef Marco Martinelli. He thanked the founders on behalf of all the team: the gelato chef Eugenio Morrone, the pastry-chef and chocolatier Massimo Carnio, the ice sculptor Ciro Chiummo. Italy will be trained by another World Champion, Beppo Tonon, also called “the gelato esthete” because of his passion for fruit and vegetable carvings.

A few days earlier at the Ecole Valrhona in Tan l’Hermitage, after the selections of the 2020 team, Club France was formed, on the initiative of the late president CNGF (Confédération Nationale des Glaciers de France) Elie Cazaussus. The priority is to support the team which will compete at Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, starting from the 9th edition, on 19 to 21 January 2020 in the South Hall at IEG Rimini Expo Centre (Italy). The team leader will be Stephane Auge’, Mof and award-winning gelato champion, then France will be represented by Franck Fouchereau, Yoann Hasselbein, Adrien Lamy and Francois Simon.

Vincent Boue’, Mof 2018, coordinated the inaugural event. Our precious friend Elie Cazaussus wanted it “to frame and support French gelato chefs in national and international competitions“. The Honorary President is Jean-Claud David, the coordinator Emmanuel Ryon. One-of-a-kind champions have already joined the Club: Cristophe Domange, Remi Montagne, Christophe Bouret, Stephane Auge’, Jean Thomas Schneider, Benoit Charvet and Gerard Cabiron.

Elie won many competitions – says Stephane Auge’he insisted to create a community able to help the teams of the future to be trained at the best and win. Another goal was to collect and share gelato knowledge. The winners of the Bocuse d’Or have a club, so do the winners of the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie: it was time to create our own. We hope that this will help them to maintain high levels over time, to improve and to grow in our community”.

The Clubs also have the indirect goal of increasing the reputation and the image of gelato chefs to the general public.

With their support, the Italian and French teams will give their opponents a run for their money in January 2020.”. President Giancarlo Timballo invites all nations to create support clubs for their teams. Which will be the next club to come to life?
