An Interview with



Steve Jobs used to say that great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people: this is why at Alifood we always select our personnel with the utmost care in order to guarantee the high-standard services that we have been providing to our clients since 1997. Being a word-leading trading company that markets Italian products also entails creating a team of international professionals who have both the expertise to understand the needs of different clients all over the word and the passion for the high-quality food produced in our country.

Our Export Manager, Nataliya Korneeva, perfectly fits this profile. Born and raised in Moscow, Nataliya moved to Italy ten years ago. An enthusiastic food lover since she was a child, Nataliya studied at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo (Italy) where she graduated in 2018. She has been with us ever since. As our Export Manager, Nataliya is in charge of dealing with a large number of clients worldwide and her personalized approach – she speaks four languages – is very much appreciated by them all. One of her main tasks is to assist them in developing new projects which aim at promoting high-quality Italian food abroad. Very committed to her job, Nataliya always strives for perfection, combining precision of execution with timely responses and a proactive behaviour.

Being a great believer in Forrest Gump’s motto according to which “life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re gonna get”, Nataliya makes of versatility one of her main strengths: she typically starts her working day early, dealing with urgent matters in the morning then she dedicates her afternoons to the development of new, creative projects which she really enjoys. Promoting Italian food excellences is one of her two greatest passions; the other one is travelling, because it allows her to discover new cultures and have a more structured vision of new, potential markets.

About Alifood

We strongly believe that everything we plan and do should create value, for both our clients and suppliers. We do not see ourselves as mere food traders.

The sale of the products we select is just the last step of a complex, structured process that is based on strong business relationships and, in many cases, real partnerships. Our job is made of several functions: sourcing the right product, selecting a reliable producer, managing the entire logistics chain, providing all the necessary documentation and certifications and following up all the after-sale requirements besides consulting and tutoring on how to best use each single product. We do all this because we strongly believe that everything we plan and do should create value, for both our clients and suppliers. Our familiarity with the Italian food an agricultural industry, developed over the last twenty years, gives us the ability to efficiently deal with all the diverse needs pertaining to different markets.
