For the 2024 Global Chef Challenge Final, 40 teams will compete in Singapore across 4 categories: The Global Chefs Challenge, Global Pastry Chefs Challenge, Global Vegan Chefs Challenge, and Global Young Chefs Challenge.

These 7 regional winners then advance to the world stage to compete for top honours alongside the prequalifying Culinary World Cup contenders at the Global Chef Challenge Finals.
For the final in 2024, there will be 2 Global Chef Senior Competitors selected per region, then 1 for Vegan, 1 for Pastry and 1 for the Young Chefs categories.
