The Rallye du Chocolat© will wrap Geneva on Saturday, 8 October 2022 in deliciousness for everyone's pleasure. Originally created to celebrate World Cocoa and Chocolate Day, the Rallye raises public awareness of sustainable development in the cocoa and chocolate sector by offering tastings of chocolate creations made by talented chocolate makers.

This year, 12 chocolate makers from Geneva will compete with each other on the theme "Grué and red fruit(s)". Young and old gourmets alike are invited to stroll through the city and push open the doors of the chocolate shops to discover these cocoa treasures as well as the clues needed to reconstruct the mystery phrase that will allow them to participate in the contest. A draw among the public will decide the winners who will receive chocolate gifts and the coveted "ChoConnaisseurs" diploma. The public elects their favorite chocolatiers, while a jury of experts awards the Jury Prize to the best chocolatier of the Rally.

To your taste buds, the Rallye du Chocolat© will melt Geneva!
We can't wait for October 8th to discover between 10am and 5pm the chocolate creations concocted by the artisans. This year, 12 chocolatiers divided into 3 courses A, B and C compete with each other to elaborate a chocolate on the theme "Grué and red fruit(s)".

World Cocoa and Chocolate Day (WCDD) to celebrate the work of cocoa farmers
Declared on October 1st, WCDD aims to raise public awareness of the work of small-scale cocoa farmers who produce 95% of the world's cocoa. The chocolate industry is increasingly committed to charters that respect producers and maintain guidelines regarding the sustainability and traceability of the cocoa used. The Rallye du Chocolat© supports this day by directly addressing the public and the chocolate makers with the presence of Grué in the chocolate creations.

A playful and gourmet itinerary
At each step of the route, the gourmet must show his or her credentials by presenting the passport and the contest form. They will then receive part of the mystery sentence, taste the chocolate creation and validate their entry form. At the end of the chosen route, chocolate lovers from 7 to 77 years old will have collected all the clues to decipher the mystery sentence and participate in the contest. The draw will choose three winners; chocolate gifts and a "ChoConnaisseurs" diploma are at stake!
