- THE EXCELLENCE OF ITALIAN CHOCOLATE-
ETHICAL COMMITMENT, EQUITY, AND TRANSPARENCY
Since the 1980s, ICAM’s two-fold commitment has involved not only studying and identifying the finest cocoa plantations, but also creating solid, lasting relationships with the self-employed farmers and local communities.
These important relationships are based on a specific ethical code that establishes values designed to be a beacon for everyday operations: respect, sustainability, transparency, a fair deal for all and a developing partnership with all operators in the production chain.
ICAM's Ethical Objective is to guarantee the traceability of all raw materials and create
partnerships with local farmers who maintain ownership of their lands. This guarantees a long-term and sustainable supply of essential resources.
This ethical management of every single relationship places the company and local farmers on similar footing, where both parties become trading partners who are ready to work together and adapt with the changing conditions of the markets.
The quest for excellence, the hallmark of the entire ICAM production chain, starts with the primary material of fine quality cocoa from selected origins.
Present for many years in the areas of origin, ICAM has established a solid, mutually beneficial relationship with cocoa farmers, and has made a financial and technological commitment towards improving conditions, such as working methods and the quality of each farm's cocoa.
ICAM takes care to improve education and infrastructures in the farming communities, as well as training for the farmers themselves.
This approach allows ICAM to establish a direct contact with the cocoa farmers and to boost fair working conditions, as well as the quality of the cocoa grown on the plantations.
