modern mediterranean flavors


the mediterranean diet inspires all our products

Alexander and his Mother

our story

In 2017, Mom and I launched Zesty Z in Brooklyn. We had no background in food, but wanted to create a modern Mediterranean brand to share the flavors and cultures from the region.

Our first products were innovative condiments that blended Za'atar and olive oil. ​Think of it as the pesto of Lebanon.

Our innovative Za'atar condiment​ earned us national placement with Whole Foods in 2018. In 2020 we expanded into popcorn​ and seasonings.

Mom taught me that FOOD IS LOVE. We're an inclusive brand that brings people together around ​different ​cultures and kitchen tables. Join us, and let's make the world more flavorful.

All The Zest,


~the word is out, we're doing something different~

So delicious!


Have been looking for za'atar for ages for a spread on pita. Saw the Zesty ad on IG & had to try it! Absolutely love it, perfect blend of herbs, sesame seeds & olive oil. Looking forward to trying the Zesty recipes! So happy to have this available now!

Just fabulous


I've always mixed this myself; however, it's so very easy just to spoon it onto fish, zuccini, whatever...I'm lazy. This is a great mixture.
