Germany is one of the countries with the highest chocolate consumption per capita. In the past chocolate used to be reserved for the rich and the aristocracy due to high tariffs and taxes and mainly available in pharmacies. Now it is a luxury food for everyone.
The profession of a Chocolatier in Germany is anchored in the confectioner’s apprenticeship, a tradition-rich and quality-oriented education.
In numerous competitions apprentices and Master Chocolatiers are manufacturing chocolate creations and works of art that inspire. Within the apprenticeship, it is possible to study abroad in order to collect ideas or expand horizons.
There are, additionally to the well-known major German chocolate producers, numerous smaller manufacturers who are specialized in high-quality chocolate creations. The awareness of sustainable and fine chocolate products and also of the production process has increased enormously in the recent years. You can explore many lectures on chocolate, workshops on chocolate and chocolate candy. Museums and international exhibitions provide a cultural offering on the topic of chocolate. Wellness and accommodation arrangements dedicated to the food of the gods offer a wonderful chocolate experience.
