Chocolate packaging stripped down to its raw form. Designed by David Riggi, Italian chocolate bars are gift wrapped neatly in brown paper and sealed with an inscription, "From Beans To Bar." Finally, truffles are stored in gourmet window gift boxes, giving focus to the product.
"Guido Castagna is one of the most important Italian chocolatier. He produced chocolate. No haste, no tricks, nor compromises. Since he started, more than ten years ago, the journey has been long and full of hurdles, but the outcome of all our hard work is what they call today the Guido Castagna Natural Method."
"It is a meticulous method of production, from the purchase of cocoa beans in certified cooperatives, up to the packaging of the products in Made in Italy packages. A method that has enabled our products to win important worldwide awards, including several “International Chocolate Awards®.”
The goal of the project was to create a packaging that transmits all the craftsmanship and care that Guido puts in his work and at the same time the naturalness of the valuable raw material: cocoa and Piedmont nuts."
