It's 2007. In the rural area of Baroque Modica he opens the small Ciokarrua workshop.
Innovation within tradition is the philosophy that sums up the vision of Giovanni Cicero, the company's artisan entrepreneur.
A project inspired by the history of the family, which has made carob a job and a twenty-year commitment, but which today aims to build its own identity.
So if carob is a destiny, chocolate is a choice.
Process the pulp and extract its essence. Toast the beans, mix the aromas, create the bars.
The products tell the story of the city and its history, passing from popular manual skills to new manufacturing techniques.
Comparison with the national and international market, participation in fairs and events, become a moment of growth and inspiration. From the experience of EXPO 2015, Ciokarrua returns to Sicily with a renewed imagination that focuses on the contamination of time, ideas and places, to trace new goals.
In 2017 he rethinks his spaces and, in the new more functional context, the laboratory becomes a real oneartisan workshop , where the machinery is built to measure for desires and ambitions and where the curious can enter to discover the gears of taste.
