Cocoa and chocolate industry plays a very important role in the world’s commodity. Le Salon du Chocolat is one of the important annual events held to celebrate the world of cocoa, chocolate and confectionery. Every year, this event has become a place to enjoy chocolate from all over the world, while also become a place to unify all players in this industry.

For the first time, ISC by its representative, Fitri Sulandary, has excitedly joined this not-to-be-missed event for four days. Located in Porte de Versailles, Paris, from October 30th – November 3rd 2013, the Salon du Chocolat was hosting more than 550 participants, chocolatiers, chefs and pastry chefs, cocoa experts, from more than 20 countries all around the world.

Along with the huge display of chocolate and confectioneries within three pavilions, various activities were also held to celebrate the world of chocolate, including Cocoa Show, Choco Demo, Chocolate Fashion Show, Chocolate Conference, Chocolate Awards and many more.
