Patrizia de Palo has been working in Monini’s logistics department for seventeen years now.
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!
Patrizia’s 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 day in day out minutiae of transport relations, especially important when there are delays before goods can leave the warehouse. Monini’s priority is reducing warehousing times to a minimum and it can thus sometimes happen that when trucks arrive the goods are not quite ready to be loaded up.
Supplies for retail outlets, restaurants and grand hotels all around the world leave from Patrizia’s Spoleto office. Behind a simultaneously stimulating but challenging task there is the satisfaction of contributing to making good products professionally and accurately together with a company which is attentive to consumers’ needs and those of its staff.
Over the years the department where Paola works has evolved, learning to deal with new types of goods and to meet the needs of different consumers. Monini’s mission, today, is no longer just to satisfy Italian consumers, but to establish a dialogue with countries where extra virgin olive oil has recently entered daily habits.
