ICAM S.p.A. - a Lecco, Italy-based artisan chocolate manufacturer owned and operated by the second generation of the Agostoni family - said it is expanding its award-winning private label chocolate manufacturing program with a new North American sales office operating under the Agostoni Chocolate brand. Located in Los Angeles, the new Agostoni Chocolate sales team will work with North American retailers and consumer brand companies to develop premium chocolate products based on a “proven private label service model” that offers a range of stock and custom options.

The decision to open a direct sales office in the United States was based on “our strong impression that North American consumers have become very sensitive to chocolate product quality,” said Carla Baroni, head of export for ICAM.

“Our recent North American projects confirm retailers there are leveraging premium private label chocolates that emphasize organic farming or unique cocoa origins to create a positive halo effect for top private label families,” she noted.
