October 5, 2010, Las Vegas, NV – Teams from the U.S. and Peru are on their way to the 2012 Bakery World Cup after winning in the Americas rounds of the Louis Lesaffre Cup.

The Americas selection rounds were held during the International Baking Industry Exposition in Las Vegas, NV last month. Over three days, teams from two regional divisions competed to create the best bread, Viennese pastry and artistic piece. Teams from Canada, Costa Rica, the United States and Mexico competed in the North and Central American regional contest, while Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru battled it out for the South American regional title.

The winning American and Peruvian teams are guaranteed a chance to compete in the Bakery World Cup, which will be held during the 2012 Europain Show in Paris.

The teams from Costa Rica and Brazil, “two ‘Challenger’ teams that amazed everyone with their performance,” according to a press release, still have a chance to compete at the Bakery World cup. Following the last of the Louis Lesaffre Cup international selection rounds in June 2011, one Challenger team will be selected to compete at the world finals.
