Director of Quality and Food Safety- Region: Italy
"I am a lucky person because I spent all my professional life – close to 20 years now - working on things that I like and where I could feel I was having an impact on making things happen. A skill that I liked to developed over years, it’s about pursuing synergies and unobvious connections.
As a background, I am industrial chemist, specialized on polymer chemistry. After a master on innovation and operation management, I joined Procter&Gamble where I spent seven years working on technology development and then product research on detergents in Brussels Innovation Center
In 2006. I joined Barilla R&D on pasta category where I could put together my passion for pasta with the passion for innovation
Since January 2017, after a whole carrier in product development, I started to discover Quality and Food Safety, the other half of the moon, maybe not as bright as the one of product innovation side, but surely the most critical side to give consumer safe products with reliable quality.
