30 May is the closing date for stage one of the third edition of the award created by Host-Fiera Milano, in collaboration with the Milan Polytechnic consortium POLI.design.
At World Pastry Stars, run in partnership with HostMilano, the experts revealed new trends in formats, choices of ingredients, packaging, e-commerce and communication with clients.
Specialist coffeehouses are growing in number and in turnover in all parts of the world, but the most dynamic region between now and 2020 will be Asia, guided by the huge Chinese market.
Tea – including herbal teas and infusions – is appearing in new channels and becoming a high-end product that is more personalised and quicker and easier to serve.
Through a range of tastings, demonstrations, classes and presentations, coffee in all its forms will be thoroughly explored at HostMilano. An educational experience provided with the help of experts from WCE and Altoga, FIPE and Mixer (among others).
