12 teams from 10 Asian countries and regions are already confirmed for the Asian selection of the Gelato World Cup.

This April, Food&HotelAsia (FHA2018) in Singapore will host the official Asian selection of the Gelato World Cup. According to show organizer UBM, 12 teams from 10 Asian countries and regions are already confirmed — out of which three teams will emerge as winners and will get to represent their cities at the Gelato World Cup 2020 in Rimini, Italy.

“Introducing the Asian Gelato Cup here in Singapore at FHA2018 is the ideal choice as Asian consumers are becoming more discerning and diverse in their healthy lifestyle choices, and their desire for high-quality food ingredients, even in desserts,” said Giancarlo Timballo, president of the Coppa del Mondo of Gelateria.

“We look forward to growing the culture of gelato making in the region.”

Supported by the Singapore Pastry Alliance, the Asian Gelato Cup, the first official Asian selection for the highly accredited Coppa del Mondo of Gelateria (Gelato World Cup), will be held at FHA2018 from April 24-27.
