Orsenigo, July 24th - ICAM has been committed for over 70 years to pursuing a distinctive production approach: producing sustainable and high quality chocolate. This approach has always been the cornerstone of all the company's choices and has led it today to announce its first sustainability report.
A report that not only certifies the values that permeate the company, but also sets new and ambitious goals for the future. Starting from its identity and responsibilities towards people, the supply chain, the community in which it operates, consumers and the planet as a whole, ICAM puts down on paper the assets that have always been considered of primary importance and defines new goals for the future, including: reduction the 50% of water consumption by 2020, reduction of the percentage of non-recycled material for the packaging of chocolate bars and further increase the share of cocoa from direct supply.
ICAM was founded in 1946 from the great passion for chocolate that the Agostoni and Vanini families have handed down from generation to generation, up to the third that now occupies top positions within the company. A passion that, combined with creativity, cutting-edge technology and attention to market trends, still represents the soul of ICAM today.
With an offer that stands out in three main product lines (dedicated to industry, private label and own brand), ICAM has now earned its place not only on the Italian market, but is increasingly asserting itself on the foreign market, which accounts for 58% of turnover 2018 (total turnover 2018: 156 Mil. €). The control of the entire production chain, from planting to the finished product and a production plant (in Orsenigo, Como) equipped with the most modern technologies of the 4.0 industry, are the two distinctive features that have always characterized the offer of ICAM. Two elements that together allow the company to develop a highly diversified production of excellent quality, with the certainty of maximum food safety guaranteed by the complete traceability of raw materials used.Made up of four main areas of interest, ICAM's Sustainability Report analyses in depth the social and environmental aspects that contribute to outlining the company's responsibilities towards society.
