In 1946, Silvio Agostoni, together with his wife and two brothers, set up a small company, ICAM, for the production of chocolate. Along with expanding their chocolate production with a focus on quality, ICAM has established itself as one of the most important organic chocolate manufacturers in the world. ICAM's chocolate is used by the top cioccolaterie and pastry chefs in Italy.
Our hands-on work in the laboratory at the ICAM Choco Scuola will be focused on the professional praline program. We'll also be visiting the ICAM chocolate factory.
