About Us


Great things come in glass jars

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 has been passed down from generation to generation within our family. And it's why Mezzetta specialty foods has grown to become the leading producer of glass-packed peppers, olives, and specialty foods in the United States.

Family owned since 1935, the fourth generation of Mezzetta family is continuing the commitment to bring our customers the highest quality foods available. We source the finest fresh produce from the sun-drenched soils of California, Italy, Spain, France, and Greece and prepare them according to our Italian family recipes at our state-of-the-art production facility in the Napa Valley.

Whether you are looking for a quick healthy snack or gourmet ingredients for your favorite dishes—reach for a jar of Mezzetta specialty foods at your local grocery store and see the difference what a little love of food can make. Inspiration is just a twist away.

From Our Customers

  • "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

  • "I just wanted to let you know how fantastic your Napa Valley Bistro Pasta Sauce is. I tried the Puttanesca and would love to tell you how good it was over pasta, but I ate it right out of the jar!" Sincerely, Mike Rukavina AZ

  • "We LOVE the Napa Valley Bistro Southwestern Olives! They are simply outstanding! They are peppy without overpowering the dish" Donna McPherson, KS

  • "I purchased your products at Whole Foods here in Baltimore, Md. just to alleviate some time that I spend in the kitchen, so thank you for giving me some extra time with my family." Anonymous

  • "So I sit here, enjoying the bright aftertaste of my banana pepper, finally remembering to catch somebody doing something "right". Thanks for a great family of products." Best Regards, Christee Gabour Atwood Louisiana
