08.12. - 10.12.2020

Therefore we would like to inform you today about the new date of the next CHOCO TEC. This will take place from 8 - 10 December 2020 again in the heart of Cologne, in the Congress Centre North.




New changes create new challenges.

This is why changes and product trends on the international chocolate market will not only be the subject of heated discussion at CHOCO TEC, but also of solution approaches and new technological developments. The program provides a comprehensive insight into topics which have been compiled by practitioners for practitioners and thus meet the current demands of the industry.


Become part of the congress program. Together with an organising committee consisting of important personalities from the confectionery industry, the ZDS is constantly on the lookout for current and interesting topics that move the confectionery world. We are particularly dependent on the support of the following groups of people:

  • Experienced Specialists
  • Scientists
  • Founders & Managing Directors
  • Creative Minds
  • Innovation Artists
  • R&D Employees
  • Technologists

If you feel addressed by one or more of the above points and have a topic that is particularly close to what we are looking for, please let us know at an early stage. We would be happy to try to make it possible for you or your topic to be included in the congress program.


CHOCO TEC is primarily aimed at people interested in technology in the chocolate industry. But it also offers other players from science, production and quality management, product development and analytics a lot of interesting things.
