Looking back at recent events

Eurobean Chocolate Festival | 4 - 6 August
Lunzenau, Germany
The Eurobean festival celebrated a delicious blend of real cocoa aromas and the exquisite craftsmanship of bean-to-bar chocolate makers, making it a real success!  The enthusiasm and positivity from craft chocolate makers is very inspiring, creating a vibrant atmosphere for all exhibitors and visiting chocolate enthusiasts. The highlight of the weekend? Lareka was given the opportunity to present an insightful presentation on "How To Wrap Chocolate" to all exhibiting chocolate makers! With such memorable moments, anticipation is high for next year's edition – hope to see you all there!

Northwest Chocolate Festival | 7 - 8 October
Bellevue, Washington, USA
Together with our exclusive distributor Tomric Systems, we joined forces at the premier event celebrating the world of craft chocolate in North-America. Just like the Eurobean, this chocolate festival is focused on bean-to-bar chocolate and also provided us the opportunity to have another informative ‘chocolate packaging’  presentation for all exhibiting chocolate makers.

Salon du Chocolat | 28 - 30 October
Paris, France
Just like the last couple editions, we proudly exhibited at the Salon du Chocolat 2023, the world's largest event dedicated to exclusive chocolate and cocoa, now in its 28th edition. Amidst the extravaganza of a spectacular fashion show, live demonstrations, engaging animations, and prestigious competitions—all devoted to the celebration of chocolate and cocoa—Lareka's live demonstration of the BTB25 attracted lots of attention. Noteworthy is the amount of BTB25-clients exhibiting at the Salon du Chocolat, something that makes us very proud!
