Vita is a small company that grew out of the desire to grow foods for our own families. We’re frustrated by the fact that foods that we purchase in the grocery store are not as healthy as we once thought they were. Many of these foods have travelled literally hundreds of miles and are laden with harmful pesticides. Many of these vegetables have far less nutrients than they did 30 years ago.
This is negatively affecting the world as well as our personal lives. We want to grow sustainable healthy foods for ourselves and want to inspire you to as well.
For us at Vita, a love for personal sustainability demands that we also look outside of our personal lives and help ones around us locally, nationally and globally.
We support food banks locally and across the nation encouraging and assisting them to grow their own vegetables. We also help communities globally. Through our philanthropic efforts we partnering with organizations to help families have access to good, fresh, foods.
At Vita we have a love for designing beautiful and functional things that help us become holistically healthier in every way.
All of the products we create are conscious of this fact including their environmental impact. We realize that conducting business – from lighting our office to running our computers – produces waste as a by-product. So we work steadily to reduce those harms. We use BPA-free and food-grade materials rather than less costly alternatives.
Our values reflect those of a business started by people conscious of sustainability, and the minimalist style we live and appreciate. The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility.
Staying true to our core values has helped us create a company we’re proud to run and work for. And our focus on making the best products possible has brought us success in the marketplace.
