From June 8th to 14th, a trip to California was made with winners of the bakery contest from different countries such as Japan, China, Germany and Mexico.

For this year, Mexico invited the first-place winner of the Sal y Dulce Artesanos bakery and the owner of the Da Silva bakery, chef Eduardo Da Silva as brand ambassador to the country.

During this trip, the participants had a seminar on bakery trends at the Culinary Institute of America given by chef Robert Jörin. They also prepared their winning recipe at the CIA and they presented it to the California Raisins packers at a dinner party.

The group also visited the fields and factories of the raisins to observe more closely the process of harvesting California Raisins and what makes them unique.
