CFI.co Meets the CEO of Molino Cañuelas: Aldo Navilli

Aldo Navilli has been Molino Cañuelas’ CEO since 1976. Mr Navilli was born in 1952 in Laboulaye a city in the Córdoba Province. At the age of 14, he began to work with his father in the wheat grinding business. By the age of 24, he bought Molino Cañuelas together with his family, becoming its CEO.

Mr Navilli’s business profile soon led Molino Cañuelas to become number one producer and exporter of wheat flour in Argentina, leading the markets of salted and sweet pre-mixes, biscuits, and flours with its brands.

Today, Molino Cañuelas has more than twenty industrial facilities and a port terminal in Zárate, in the province of Buenos Aires.

With a staff of more than 3,000 employees, and a strategy for growth and expansion at a regional level, Mr Navilli has taken more than 150 products to more than 60 countries, developing his vertically integrated business vision that guarantees the quality of products, the handling of raw materials, and efficiency in all processes. He succeeded in strengthening capacities as a producer of raw materials. He also articulated an effective production and distribution system differing from the traditional channel, creating a new model.

In addition, Mr Navilli is CEO in Agripecuaria AN, Puramel, Santa Cecilia, Logística Portuaria Molca, Cañuelas Pack Flexible Packaging, Molino Americano in Uruguay, and in Brazil, Mohino Cañuelas and Viu, a textile company producing and marketing the brands Vitamina and Uma in the region.

Socially committed, Mr Navilli carries out a CSR programme in aboriginal communities in northern Argentina through the application of a management and vision system. Together with his collaborators, he successfully demonstrated that through education and methods, a unique concept based on communities’ self-sustainability can be implemented, allowing them to leave a reality of poverty and structural misery through work. From 2017, through the San Ignacio Foundation he began to replicate the programme in new Wichi aboriginal communities in the area.

Aldo Navilli is essentially a good innovator of ideas which are focused on the development of a management system of his own, promoting innovation, quality, and efficiency in all processes.
