It was in 1868 that Cesar Martin, son of laundry workers, decided to manufacture olive oil as a business. He bought an old mill in Nice, and began what would be a centuries-old success story. It was in 1900 that his son-in-law, Nicolas Alziari, took over the company and revolutionized their production. By incorporating techniques used in wine, chocolate, and coffee, he was able to create extraordinary oils, selling to prestigious clients and gaining much traction.

He and his wife, Jeanne, opened a store in Gubernatis Street. And their daughter, Pauline, eventually opened a second shop, close to the flower market, which will become the emblematic address.

House Alziari has gone through many generations, each contributing to its success. It is now a name in the world of olive oils, housed in the most prestigious delicatessens, and used by the best chefs and restauranteurs in the world.

Refrigerate your tapenade. Unopened, they will last at least 3 months. Once opened, consume within 2 weeks.
