Barry Callebaut opens Chocolate Academy™ Center Dubai at the foot of Burj Khalifa

The Barry Callebaut Group just inaugurated its relocated Chocolate Academy™ Center Dubai, which is now at the foot of the Burj Khalifa, one of the world's most iconic landmarks. According to the company, this new location and facility serves as a creative platform where chefs and artisans can showcase and develop their talent and skills. As Center Dubai is part of the wider Chocolate Academy™ Center network with 24 academies across the globe, it will be the premier platform for bringing renowned chefs to Dubai to inspire, train and advise local artisans.

With a team of dedicated chefs, Center Dubai plays an important role in inspiring and educating the chocolate industry and introducing new techniques to artisans, pastry chefs, confectioners, bakers and caterers. It also plays an important role in driving innovation as consumption patterns shift towards premiumization and new concepts in terms of design, colour and flavours. Courses and events with physical attendance will resume as of October 21, 2021.
