Due to the current health situation, the 20th edition of Sirha Lyon will be rescheduled to September 23-27, 2021, in Eurexpo Lyon (France). The finale of the Pastry World Cup will take place on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September 2021. Pastry chefs from France, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Russia, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Kuwait, United Kingdom, Brazil, South Korea and Taiwan will compete over two days.
“For nearly a full year now, the food industry and food service sector have been among the most impacted by the health crisis,” explains Olivier Ginon, chairman/CEO of GL events. “The return to business in January 2021 has not reduced the uncertainty surrounding the opening of restaurants in France, which is not expected to happen before the spring. Consequently, we have taken the exceptional decision to reschedule the 2021 edition of Sirha Lyon. The event will take place at Eurexpo Lyon from September 23rd to 27th, 2021 and will make a strong mark on the recovery of a sector that is essential to society, to the economy and even to our lives.”
More than ever, Sirha Lyon 2021 promises to pay a vibrant tribute to all types of cuisines that have had to adapt to this complex period in the history of the industry.
