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 oil but isn’t itself oil passes through here. Nicoletta Artegiani and Gianluca Lupi take us around the place where oil is bottled and packed ready for the supermarkets.
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.
The choice of packaging components materials has an immediate impact on consumer use and on environment. This is why we pay such great attention to selecting and checking the various packaging options.
Nicoletta started working at Monini in 1990 and she remembers the 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.
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, 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.
