We love food. Quality food. Delicious food. Traditional food. Flavorful food. Healthy food. Convenient food. Fresh food. Yummy food. It's this love and passion for food that's been passed down from generation to generation within our family.
At Mezzetta, we strive to add joy to everything we do. From our glass-jarred, globally-inspired products to our spirited company culture, we believe in celebrating and sharing the little things that make life special.
It all began in 1935 when Giuseppe Mezzetta brought a taste of Italy to his new home in San Francisco. Today, more than 80 years later, our passion for food and flavor is stronger than ever. Now led by CEO Jeff Mezzetta, Giuseppe’s great-grandson, the company has expanded nationally to showcase a wide variety of premium products from across the globe, like Greek peperoncini, olives, pasta sauce, and other Mediterranean products. But our unwavering commitment to family recipes, world-class ingredients, and unforgettable flavor remains the same, and we aren’t satisfied until we get it right.
At our family-owned company, everyone is an honorary Mezzetta — from the farmers to the team on the factory floor, from the sales team who keep the shelves stocked to our loyal fans who seek a bit of adventure in every meal. That’s how it’s always been at Mezzetta, and that’s how it always will be.
