It is with great sadness that we have to relay the passing of Mr Mario Sardo, of Italian Continental.
Mario passed away in his sleep last weekend, May 1st, 2022.
Mario along with his brother Rosario and extended family ran Italian Continental, a supplier to Minoli for almost 25 years. No Minoli event was complete with out Italian wines, foods and the very special panettones that were only available from the Sardo family.
Mario was very much a one off, a truly unique charm, ceaseless energy, a razor sharp wit coupled with what could best be described as “blue” vocabulary. Those that worked with Mario, as supplier, client or staff member could not help but be drawn to him, truly one of life’s loveable rascals.
We here at Minoli can only imagine the void his passing leaves for the family, his friends and the company, which will never be filled. He will be missed beyond measure within the industry that he worked and the wider world, but the memories and stories will never leave those that knew him.
Minoli send our heartfelt condolences to Rosario, Mr & Mrs Sardo (senior) and the entire Italian Continental family.
