Chocolate and change

What drives people to change? It is from this question that Cadesio was born in 2019. Our company has a very specific social purpose: to spread a message of hope and push others to change things. How do we want to spread this message? Using chocolate as a carrier. "Ca" stands for cacao and for cambiamento (italian words for cocoa and change), "desio" is for desire. Desire of chocolate, but also desire to change our society. Nine chocolates, nine unique flavors, nine stories, nine foundations, one community.

We invite you to follow our adventure and to help us making this change possible.

We are ambitious
