The retailer’s new packaging features new icons that highlight each product’s most important attributes, e.g. vegetarian, non-GMO, USDA Organic and more.
“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, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co.
