This is the first edition where all the teams have been officially selected by the Committee of the “Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria,” as they supervised different competitions around the world. The selection process started 16 months ago with the competition at Feria Internacional del Helado in Mexico City (February 2018). It was followed by the Asian Gelato Cup at FHA in Singapore (April 2018), the Longarone Eis Challenge(December 2018), and Sigep Gelato d’Oro (January 2019). The selections in Warsaw (Expo Sweet) and Madrid (Intersicop) occurred in February 2019. Recentcompetitions were held at the Valrhona headquarters in TainL’Hermitage and at Fithep in Buenos Aires. Gelato – and Pastry – Chefs, Ice Carvers and Executive Chefs from all over the world have challenged themselves with spatulas, batch freezers and top-quality ingredients!

After years of alternating participation, France and Italy will finally fight on the same stage. These countries have already marked precise strategies and expectations are high!

Only one place is still available. The Committee is examining the proposals of three countries (Australia, Hungary and Morocco). In a few days, the final verdict will be announced.

The team managers still have a few months to finalize the details of their participation.

The President of Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, Giancarlo Timballo, reveals:

The trial dedicated to the decorated sundae cup has been replaced by the glass single-portion trial. This new type of frozen dessert presentation is booming worldwide. All other trials will not be changed. While we thank CompritalGroup for having sponsored several editions of Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, we are pleased to announce the entry of PreGel as platinum sponsor of the competition. We are extremely pleased to say that Valrhona, Electrolux and Carpigiani are onboard too“.

Each team will be composed of a Gelato Chef, a Pastry Chef, an Executive Chef and an Ice Carver, all coordinatedby a Captain. What can we expect? 60 competitors, 14 technical judges, 7 international media jurors, 3 jurors and 8 race tests in 3 days (glass single-portion, mystery box, gelato-cake, entrée of haute cuisine, ice- and brittle-sculptures and the new trend of gelato snacks, in addition to the final Grand Buffet, which is the presentation of all the creations).
