About Us

 

Great things come in glass jars

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.

  • "In a rush to make dinner, I decided to "cheat" and buy a jar of sauce instead of cooking from scratch. Your Porcini, Portabella and Merlot Sauce is the very best I've ever tried from a jar!" Glynnis, Louisiana

  • "The Castelvetrano olives are the closest you can get to the "real thing" here in the U.S.! We spent two weeks celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in Italy last year and discovered this type of olive in a little osteria near Sorrento. I have been craving them since then and stumbled across your product in my local Kroger last month. Thank you so much for taking me back to Italy every time I open a new jar! " Waller, TX
