Company certifications
ISO 9001
ISO 9001
For ICAM, this is a founding platform upon which to build further, specific quality management processes.
It is on top of this base that the company has constructed a strong, reliable, continually updated system of guarantees able to handle any new challenges that might arise regarding quality and food safety.

These certifications are especially welcomed by the major European distribution chains. They are a demonstration of the company’s commitment to the safety and quality of its products and compliance with the regulations and standards governing the food and farming sector:

  • full adoption of an HACCP system
  • adoption of a documented quality management system
  • checks carried out on the environment, production process and human resources
  • compliance with the highest quality standards, thus consistently guaranteeing product characteristics and customer satisfaction
Product certification
ICAM’s approach is geared towards total quality and a prompt response to the latest trends in consumption, and this is confirmed by a number of specific product certifications requiring compliance with stringent quality regulations, thus offering further guarantees for the customer.

The organic segment

Since way back in 1997, ICAM has been convinced of the importance of adopting an organic approach, and it was the first Italian chocolate manufacturer to rise to the organic challenge.  
ICAM’s organic approach means respect for the natural characteristics of its products. No chemical and microbiological treatments are used, and production complies with the times and methods established by nature for each stage in the chain: from growing, preparing and storing the ingredients to processing them. Specific requisites vary from one country to the next, but in general require compliance with a series of standards and regulations governing production, growing, conservation, processing, packaging and shipping. These include:

  •     not using chemical or synthetic products, genetically modified organisms or irradiation at any stage of the production process
  •     growing ingredients on agricultural land on which no chemical substances have been used for a considerable number of years
  •     traceability and the adoption of a documented production system
  •     keeping organic and conventional products strictly separate from each other
  •     regular on-site inspections
