Kazzen was founded in 2004 by the D'Ancona brothers with the mission to develop and preserve the native capers and agriculture of their home, the beautiful island of Pantelleria. The volcanic island is also home to native varieties of oregano and grapes, which feature prominently in their products as well. Alessandro D’Ancona and his wife use their family land to cultivate their capers and oregano along with other vegetables and fruits.
Their production facility is situated right beside the growing fields so the fresh produce travels only meters to be processed. They use no preservatives or coloring in any of their products, most of which have only a few simple ingredients.
In 2005 they won their first flavor award for their Pesto Pantesco, and have continued to be recognized for their delicious products.
