At the 2019 Bocuse d’Or Grand Final in Lyon, METRO again will play a major role as main sponsor and official ingredient supplier to this world renowned culinary competition.

As the rules require, the Chartreuses must contain a minimum of 50% vegetal products and stuffed with a stew made using 4 shellfish.
