Today the company is still run by a woman, Danièle Kapel Marcovici, and Lorenza Zanardi has been the Director of Rajapack Italia since 2010. Through the “RAJA Danièle Marcovici Foundation”, established in 2006, the RAJA Group pursues a company policy that aims to benefit women and support environmental projects around the world. Over the past 10 years the foundation has collected 4 million Euros to support 50,000 women across the world in 300 projects in 44 countries.
“What distinguishes us is our extremely high standard of service. In order to maintain this level of performance we need be able to unload goods and prepare orders without hold-ups. P3 is an excellent partner, it always moves quickly to resolve any maintenance problems.
P3 also promotes relationship-building between various customers within P3 Castel San Giovanni park, organising meetings that improve relations with our neighbours and therefore providing Rajapack with important networking opportunities.”
