Starting from a handful of competitors originally, more and more countries are now sending participants. This year 12-14 countries are expected to take part in this annual competition which is held in the various member countries in turn. The competing countries are all members of the International Union of Bakers and Confectioners, UIBC.
Each country sends two candidates who are normally the winners and runners-up of the respective national championships. In some countries, these championships are held immediately before the UIBC Competition, while the qualification in other countries is based on the previous year’s competition.
The values of excellence and passing on of know-how are inherent to the bakery trade. Sirha has always been keen to promote and highlight the young talents in the industry. The Bakery Trends Stage is proud to welcome the second edition of the International Competition for Young Bakers.
Over the course of 2 days of contest, the most promising bakers on the international scene will demonstrate wonders in creativity and skills and will offer an unforgettable show.

First Prize: Pernilla Boström (Sweden)
