Passion and Tradition

A passion, for quality chocolate, handed down over three generations. Since 1946, the Agostoni family has produced chocolate without losing sight of the values that define it: the search for and selection of the best ingredients, control of the production chain and a sustainable approach.

Cocoa at the source

Production of a high quality chocolate starts with the search for and selection of excellent cocoa at the source, with unique, top quality aromas, followed by the processing of the cocoa paste, “pure” and “clean” to the development of recipes that are always well balanced. In this way, ICAM chocolate reflects the typical character and flavour of the best sourced cocoa.

Standards of Quality

ICAM is a guarantee of products which meet high standards of quality as a result of the focus on the ingredients and production processes: checks on the production chain; stand-alone, in-house production of semi-finished cocoa products; cutting-edge production technology; the selection of high-quality, safe, monitored ingredients; and a strict quality and certification system.

Control of the Production Line

Control of the production line means achieving high quality standards by monitoring all the production stages: the plantation, the cultivation, the harvest and fermentation, the drying and quality control. Personnel on-site in the places of origin guarantee the procurement of primary ingredients from a reliable source, integrity and freshness in accordance with the principles of sustainability.
