Highlights of the 2019 Opening Night!

Tuesday 29 October 2019, the 25th Salon du Chocolat opened its doors for a gourmet and charity evening.

After enjoying exclusive access to the Salon and meet some of the most talented professionals in the industry, António and Fradique, the artists behind Calema and natives of São Tomé and Principe – aka “Cocoa Island” – were back on stage at the Cacao Show after their very first concert back in 2011. What an honour!

This exceptional show continued with the chocolate fashion show which retraced the great history of chocolate, from its discovery 500 years ago to today, and showed off a selection of the greatest chocolate dresses created exclusively for the Salon.

A great evening organised on behalf of the Children of Africa Foundation in the presence of Mrs Dominique Ouattara, First Lady of Côte d’Ivoire, founder of the Children of Africa Foundation, and Marraine of the Salon du Chocolat.
