BOCA RATON, Fla., June 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vitacost.com, a leading online retailer of health and wellness products and wholly owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co., announces the debut of new branding for its dietary supplements, including new names and simplified packaging.
“Since 1999, our customers have counted on the high-quality ingredients and exceptional value of Vitacost supplements. Our new family of Vitacost supplement brands delivers the same great quality and value customers know and love, with an updated look that makes supplement shopping easier than ever,” said Brian Helman, President of Vitacost.com.
The new packaging features easy-to-understand icons that highlight each product’s most important attributes, e.g. vegetarian, non-GMO, USDA Organic and more. The system of icons was developed by Vitacost.com to increase transparency and make it simpler for customers to select the supplements that suit their specific needs.
In addition to the packaging changes, supplements have been organized into three major brands:
- Vitacost brand: The Company’s flagship brand features simple, straightforward formulas that offer high-quality foundational nutrition at an exceptional value. The trusted ingredients and formulations of the existing supplements have not changed. Notable products include Vitacost Probiotic 15-35, Vitacost Vitamin D3 Mini Gels and Vitacost CoQ10.

All Vitacost supplement brands strive to deliver the most effective potency without compromising the purity of ingredients. Each product is formulated with a sense of pride that’s backed by the company’s promise: love your product or you’ll receive a full refund.
“Quality and safety are our cornerstones,” said Terry Papadopoulos, Senior Manager of Product Development at Vitacost.com. “All Vitacost supplements adhere to the FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs), ensuring high standards of potency, purity, efficacy and safety. Our team of nutrition scientists carefully researches, develops and reviews all ingredients and finished formulations, because we know that what you put into your body matters.”
