ICAM prides itself on partnerships. Its chairman and president, Angelo Agostoni, has spent the last 45 years working with farmers in Central and South America, and most recently, Uganda, in helping them produce better cocoa beans as well as improved yields.
It also looks to its suppliers that way. Arlington, Mass.-based Global Organics has been supplying organic sugar to ICAM for the past several years. Given the Italian chocolate company’s stringent quality control standards, that in itself says something.
