Mission: We believe in sharing joy. We pour our hearts into what we do, so we can share the best of the world in all its richness and color.

G.L Mezzetta – Why Work For Us?


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.

Our story began in 1935, when Giuseppe Mezzetta brought a taste of Italy to his new home in San Francisco. Today, four generations later, our passion for food and flavor is stronger than ever. Now led by CEO Jeff Mezzetta and headquartered in Napa Valley, the company has expanded nationally to showcase a wide variety of premium products from across the globe, and we’re proud to be the country’s leading brand of specialty olives and peppers.

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.

As we write our next chapter, we’re looking for bright, qualified candidates to join the Mezzetta family. Our team is passionate about flavor, quality, and fun, and we think food made with love tastes better. From sales and marketing to operations and maintenance, every day is an adventure, and we’d love to have you join us.


When Giuseppe Mezzetta moved to San Francisco, he missed the rich flavors of his native Italy — so he set his sights on bringing the best of the Mediterranean to his new home. He opened a small storefront in North Beach, the city’s Italian neighborhood, to share his favorite imported foods, and he soon earned a reputation for excellent service and top-quality products. Giuseppe could never have dreamed that his modest “mom and pop” store would become the foundation of a proud legacy and a future leader in the grocery aisle. 


Four generations later, the Mezzetta name still stands for delicious, authentic products crafted with care. CEO Jeff Mezzetta, Giuseppe’s great-grandson, continues the tradition while driving the company forward with product innovation, expanded distribution, and a passion for bringing the flavors of the world to kitchens across the country. Today, Mezzetta is a category leader in glass-packed peppers, olives, and premium Mediterranean-inspired products — and at 80 years young, we’re only just getting started.


We’re on a mission to share the joy of food and flavor with the world, and that begins with a fantastic team. We’re always looking for qualified candidates to join the fun and help us write the next chapter of our brand’s story.


Mezzetta is a fast-paced company powered by passionate people across a wide variety of specialties: production, sales, operations, IT, marketing, and so much more. If you’d like to join a family-owned company that truly feels like a family, we invite you to explore our current job openings and let us know how you'd like to get involved.

    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. I interviewed at G.L Mezzetta (American Canyon, CA) in May 2017.


    I was contacted by the Talent Manager at Mezzetta via LinkedIn. As I was working with an external recruiter at the time, I did not have a phone interview, but was invited out for an interview on-site in American Canyon. The interview process consisted of two rounds. The first was a 1:1 with the hiring manager and HR. The second was a small panel interview with key members of the management team. I was made aware of the process up front and next steps were communicated clearly throughout the process. Once the interviews were complete, there were reference and background checks as well as a personality test, for lack of a better word. The process was smooth and clearly communicated and took about 2 weeks.
