Company Overview

About Marzetti

"We will start a new place and serve good food. At a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but we will serve good food." With this short notation on a scrap of paper, Teresa Marzetti set the tone for the company that bears her name.

Today, T. Marzetti Company, a leading specialty foods company, celebrates its strong brands, outstanding products and innovative culture.

These products includes many of America's favorites, like Marzetti® salad dressings and dips, New York Bakery® frozen breads and Sister Schubert's® homemade rolls.


We bring delicious food to the table, superior service to our customers, and value to our consumers through product innovation and differentiation.

Core Values

Act with Integrity: Strive to do “the right thing” at all times, and uphold the values and principles of our Company’s heritage.

Be Perceptive: See your work through your customers’ and consumers’ eyes. Before anything leaves your hands, ask yourself “If I were the customer or consumer, would I feel good about receiving this?”

Work safely: Take responsibility for your personal safety and watch out for the safety of others. Follow safe work practices and policies. Be part of creating and sustaining an environment where no one gets hurt.

Respect each other: We are all a valuable part of Marzetti. It takes all of us to create loyal customers and consumers. Respect that, and respect each other’s contributions to our success.

Be Positive: You can make it happen. Don’t focus on problems; focus on opportunities to make things better. Every one of us has an important role in creating loyal and satisfied customers and consumers.

Winning is just the Beginning: We must bring delicious food to the table and deliver superior service and value at all times. Winning a new customer or consumer is just the beginning; every associate plays an important role in making them loyal, long term.

Be Accountable: Stand behind what you do. Remember we are each other’s customer too. We depend on each other to provide great service to ourselves and ultimately to the end customer. When we all pull our share, together we win.

Communicate, Communicate, Communicate: Communicate in every direction—to the people you work with, to your supervisor, to people who report to you—the more you keep talking, the more you’ll find ways to work as a team. We win as a team.

Anticipate: Think and look ahead to ensure a smooth process.

Continuous Improvement: Every one of us can make our workplace and processes better. There is always room for improvement in any process. You are the expert in your area. If you think there is a better way to do something, speak up, let your team know and let your supervisor know. The Company is dedicated to the principles of work environment, commitment, integrity and communication. Our unified community is directed toward achieving Company goals and recognizing the contributions of our associates.
