Patrizia de Palo has been working in Monini logistics department for seventeen years.
At the beginning it wasn’t easy to fit into a men only world but as time went on a marked aptitude for team work helped her to get along smoothly with everyone. Or almost, because now it is the others who have to keep up with her feverish pace!
I WAS IN JERUSALEM WHEN I HEARD I’D BEEN HIRED: IT WAS TRULY A PROPHETIC JOURNEY.
Patrizia working day is filled up with the many activities involved in warehouse management: preparing loads, sorting orders, tracing products and organizing the stock. And then there is the transport relations, especially important when there are delays before goods can leave the warehouse. Monini priority is to reduce the storage time but sometimes it might happen that, when trucks arrive, the goods are not ready for loading.
IT’S LIKE PLAYING MONOPOLY. THERE ARE UNEXPECTED EVENTS, PROBABILITY FACTORS AND CHALLENGES EVERY DAY.
Supplies for Italy and abroad retail outlets, restaurants and grand hotels leave from Patrizia office in Spoleto. Behind a stimulating but challenging task there is the satisfaction to supply good products, professionally and accurately together with a company which is attentive to consumer needs and those of its staff.
OVER THE YEARS THE DEPARTMENT HAS EVOLVED WITH NEW TYPES OF GOODS AND CLIENTS.
Over the years extra virgin olive oil has broken out of the exotic product niche to which it was confined abroad and become one of the product leaders in a new eating philosophy focusing on health and simplicity. This positive fact has opened up new horizons for top quality Italian products and, at the same time, a scenario in which Italian producers are not simply product guarantors but also exponents of a still to be discovered food culture if conscious choices are to be made.
