German Challenge

The Carpigiani Distributors in Germany, in collaboration with Carpigiani Gelato University, Sigep – Italian Exhibition Group S.p.A and Uniteis, have organized “Gelato World Tour German Challenge,” a traveling competition to select the best flavors to participate in the German Finals of Gelato World Tour.

The Gelato World Tour, which is supported by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of Economic Development, as well as the Regione Emilia Romagna, is the first international traveling competition in search of the best flavors in the world. Gelato World Tour has visited 11 Gelato Capitals – Rome, Valencia, Melbourne, Dubai, Austin, Berlin, Rimini, Singapore, Tokyo, Shenzhen and Chicago. The tour also hosts more than 30 smaller competitions, like the German Challenge, around the globe in locations such as Italy, China and Colombia. Following the success of all of our events, the organizers have dedicated a special part of the Tour to Germany. The first 9 gelato artisans that will participate in the German Finals were chosen during the semifinals held during Sigep 2017; the remaining 7 spots will be filled thanks to the winners of the Challenges which will be held at the Carpigiani distributors.
