This oregano is grown in Pantelleria, a volcanic island known for its nutrient rich soil. It is harvested at the end of May and into early June and is air dried in the shade for 10-15 days before it is packaged.
Kazzen was founded in 2004 by the D'Ancona brothers with the mission to develop and conserve the native capers and agriculture of their home, the island of Pantelleria. They use their family land to cultivate and produce their award-winning products. In 2005 they won their first flavor award with their Pesto Pantesco, and have continued to win awards and be recognized for their typical products. Still using only manual production methods, Kazzen is a small family company dedicated to preserving the traditional flavors of their island.
