Our family’s story: the passionate pursuit of excellence in raw materials quality, trading partner equity, precision processing and—ultimately—delicious chocolate
We believe in an eco-sustainable future and are living this reality in our new $80+M factory (opening in 2010).
Our company cannot be bought. We will not be sold. As fate will allow, we aspire to practice our art for many generations to come.
We are the Agostoni family, making chocolate as an act of pure faith in the perfect marriage of ancient ingredients, artisan crafting and modern organic purity.
After World War II, in an act of courage and optimism, we built our first factory from the rubble of a bombed block in Lecco on Lake Como. There we began the journey that continues today: to release the true potential of ancient cocoa to enrich the farmer, inspire the producer and delight the consumer.
We demand the highest quality fermented beans from our farming partners.
We will not trade if the trade harms our partner or the ecology of the farming region.
We do not shun modernity. Continuous research and development is the heart of our family’s working culture. We harness new methods and state-of-the-art technologies with the authority of the Italian artisan and the sensibility of the Italian industrialist, pursuing the creation of something beautiful, pure and thoroughly new.
