Wednesday, 28 February, 2018, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
Organised by UBM and supported by the Singapore Pastry Alliance, The Asian Gelato Cup, the first official Asian selection for the Coppa del Mondo of Gelateria (Gelato World Cup), will take place at Singapore Expo and Suntec Singapore between April 24 and 27, 2018.

The event, which is for trade professionals only, will be held in conjunction with Food&HotelAsia (FHA), the preferred choice for industry professionals to access an international showcase of food and hospitality products, equipment and solutions, which are needed to drive business inspiration.

As a region known for leading dietary and robust food trends, and Singapore being home to the Asia Pacific champion for the renowned Gelato World Tour and other emerging gelato-makers, FHA2018 is the perfect host for the official Asian selection for the Gelato World Cup.

In delivering on its successful legacy for 40 years, FHA has added another feather in its cap - to unleash new gelato trends, bring about the best in creativity and professionalism and showcase the artisanship of the finest talents in Asia.

Twelve teams from 10 Asian countries and regions are confirmed. Out of these, three will emerge as winners and will get to represent their cities at the Gelato World Cup 2020 in Rimini, Italy.

The winners will be selected by an esteemed panel of judges, headed by Giancarlo Timballo, president, Gelato World Cup. The panel will comprise Philippines’ television chef Jackie Ang Po and Louis Tanuhadi, general secretary, Indonesian Pastry Alliance, among others.

Medals and certificates will also presented for Best Gelato Cake, Best Plated Dessert, Best Artistic Showpiece, Best Tasting Gelato Prize and Best Team Spirit.

“Introducing the Asian Gelato Cup at FHA2018 in Singapore is the ideal choice, as Asian consumers are becoming more discerning and diverse in their healthy lifestyle choices, and their desire for high-quality food ingredients, even in desserts. We look forward to growing the culture of gelato making in the region,” said Timballo.

“With the changing food and beverage (F&B) landscape in the region, the potential to tap into consumers’ tastebuds through frozen novelties will offer new opportunities for industry players. The launch of the inaugural Asian Gelato Cup is set to encourage individuals, businesses and entrepreneurs in Asia to join the global frozen dessert industry, and tap into a market segment which is worth tens of billions of dollars worldwide,” said Rodolphe Lameyse, project director, food and hospitality, UBM.

Capfruit, Carpigiani, Elle & Vire, Fabbri 1905, IFI, Irinox, KitchenAid, Redman by Phoon Huat and Valrhona are the sponsors of the competition.

ProWine Asia 2018, the largest trade fair of its kind in Southeast Asia, will take place at Singapore Expo, alongside FHA2018.
