Nicoletta Artegiani and Gianluca Lupi work at the packaging purchasing office. The purchasing office is the first and last frontier between the company and the world: from labels to packaging, warehouse to distribution, everything which rotates around passes through here. Nicoletta Artegiani and Gianluca Lupi take us around the place where oil is bottled and packed ready for the supermarkets.
FROM SPOLETO TO THE WORLD, IT ALL PASSES THROUGH HERE.
Going into the purchasing office is a little like sneaking backstage in a theatre. This is where the magic happens, where oil takes the shape consumers are used to seeing it, in TV advertising and on their dining tables.
Dozens of labels and bottles in the most different forms stretch out across the warehouse, colors and labels in different languages crowd the shelves. Let’s take a closer look for an insight into how some of our products are sold in Italy and abroad.
WE ARE THE COMPANY HISTORIC PURCHASING MEMORY.
Nicoletta started working at Monini in 1990 and she remembers the firm company before standing out in the international market. Different times. Here are some of her memories with Giuseppe Monini, the second generation, Zefferino and Maria Flora’s father.
PACKAGING MUST BE GIVEN THE IMPORTANCE IT DESERVES.
The choice of packaging components materials has an immediate impact on consumer and on environment. This is why we pay such great attention to selecting and checking the various packaging options.
A NEW CHALLENGE EVERY DAY.
A good packaging contributes to good storage and facilitates transport and consumer use
They work long, hard but fulfilling days in the purchasing office precisely because it is an internal-external border land between the raw product and the, ready-for-sale product, between those who make and those who buy oil. Truly a front-line occupation.
