Life at Mezzetta
Mezzetta is an organization that is rich in history, as well as potential. Founded over 80 years ago, Mezzetta is still owned and operated by the Mezzetta family. Our current CEO, Jeff Mezzetta, has driven our brands growth and evolution into the amazing family of products we offer today.

Today you can expect a dynamic organization. Mezzetta competes to be the leader in every Category we enter. Our leadership team features talent from major CPG companies such as Campbell's, ConAgra, Pepsi, Nestle, and PulmuOne Foods. Our team has grown to over 300 in recent years and features a diverse group of professionals who love to Share Joy by putting the best of themselves into everything we do!

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.
