Gelato World Tour is headed to Japan!

Gelato World Tour is the first international traveling competition with the mission to spread the culture of artisan gelato throughout the world. In its search for the best flavors in the world, Gelato World Tour has hosted over 100 competitions in over 20. After having successfully completed two tours around the world, Gelato World Tour will continue its search by kicking off its new tour in Japan! The next stop will be in Yokohama during the fall of 2019. Which flavors will be present? The qualifying rounds, called “Challenges,” are starting now!

In fact, the winner of the Yokohama stop will go on to compete there against the winners from around the world for the title of World’s Best Gelato!
