Za.Be. was founded in 1964, with the idea to launch on the market the good traditional Italian recipes of canned food, prepared with all the care and passion of the handcraft creations of once ago.
It is so that a large selection of sauces, pickled and brined of the artisan tradition land in the industrial reality, becoming immediately a great success. Thanks also to the lucky commercial intuitions, the following period is of strong economic expansion, during which the firm succeeds to establish itself on the markets, with a special vocation towards foreign countries.
During year 2015, in order to maintain the high quality – since always associated to the trademark Za.Be. – and in the meantime the competitiveness of the prices, the management decides to move in outsourcing the production of their own recipes, using their long experience as a producer to choose the best suppliers for each line of the catalogue, and to present to the customers an incomparable offer regards to both quality and extent of the selection.
Thanks to the solid experience acquired in these decades and to the great passion for our job, Za.Be. has become a dynamic and lively reality, where the ancient tastes of tradition meet the new recipes of the modernity, in order to satisfy the most demanding tastes who still keep on choosing our products through-out the whole Europe and the World.
Za.Be.’s task in today’s market, in which offer is enormous and it has become even more difficult to distinguish high quality products from poor imitations, is to offer a selection of the best food preserves, manufactured by the best producers.
We aim to act for our clients as the principal reference on the market, in order to recommend them the best for their research of the product, offering a whole range of services focused to their complete satisfaction.
