One business, many talents
Ours is a people-centred company. We have over 8,000 employees working to put high-quality products on the tables of consumers in Italy and around the world.
We work together in a spirit of loyalty, transparency, sustainability, and fair competition, making the most of each individual’s specific professional skills.
What we do
Human resourcesThe HR division manages over 8,000 direct employees from seventy-five countries, each with their own unique skill set. It helps the company to achieve its objectives, and supports employees throughout their careers with Veronesi. Its mission is to maintain consistently high standards of professionalism and ensure that staff have the expertise they need to maintain the group’s benchmark status in its sector.
SalesOur brands reach some eighty countries around the world. We export high-quality Italian meat products and animal feeds, and at home our comprehensive distribution system gives us a nationwide presence. Seventeen percent of our production goes abroad. Our distributors, specialising in specific markets and channels, and our dedicated export sales team, put our brands on the tables of people in Italy and across the globe.
Research, development, and marketing
Research, development, and marketingInnovation is an integral part of Gruppo Veronesi’s identity, and consumers have always associated it with our AIA, Negroni, and Veronesi brands. The purpose of research, development and marketing is to interpret and anticipate changing consumer tastes. Our strong focus on innovation has enabled us to create new markets for traditional Italian foods, and to put new products on people’s tables. We travel widely, keeping a close eye on cultural changes that could influence the market. We believe in the importance of communication in sustaining our key brands, which inspire intense consumer loyalty.
Veterinary services division
Veterinary services divisionThis serves as a centre of excellence for the animal husbandry sector, with veterinary experts using the latest technology to support every aspect of farmers’ lives, from building and modernising farms to technology advice and livestock inspections. Because we work with so many farmers and so many different animals, the support we provide must follow strict rules. Our technicians, farmers and veterinarians maintain daily contact and achieve the very highest standards of quality.
ICTOur ICT division works closely with all areas of the company, developing integrated digital business processes that can be managed in real time using industry 4.0 technology. The unique complexity of the group and its integrated supply chain requires us to develop dedicated software to analyse, collate and manage the huge quantities of data we generate. The ICT division’s main mission is to ensure that all systems in the chain can talk to one another to support the company’s goals and strategies and solve its problems. We collaborate with many of the world’s leading technology companies, making the division an even more dynamic and stimulating place in which to work.
LogisticsLogistics is the final link in a long and complex chain, ensuring that product quality is maintained until it reaches the consumer. Thanks to our sophisticated proprietary IT system, we can monitor the status and temperature parameters of each delivery in real time. Customs certification enables us to deliver more quickly to many parts of Europe and the rest of the world. The jewel in our crown is the highly automated robot technology we use to store and prepare products for dispatch.
Production technologyOur twenty-three factories use highly automated production lines and robot technology, and next-generation logistical platforms. These require increasingly advanced technology and engineering know-how. We invest tens of millions of euro in production technology each year, so we’re always on the lookout for young and talented maintenance engineers to tackle new challenges and grow with us.
QualityQuality is an issue that affects every link in the group’s supply chain, from the arrival of raw materials to the distribution of the end product. Each is subject to meticulous checks by our staff of almost 100 quality controllers (of whom sixty-five work in the food division, and twenty-nine in feeds), who work closely with the quality managers of each production facility. Our inhouse diagnostic and chemical laboratories enable us to carry out fast checks to ensure that our food and feed products meet the very highest standards.
