*Certified B Corporation is a global movement of for-profit businesses seeking change; using businesses as a force for good. To certify as a B Corp, a company must achieve a minimum verified score of 80 points on the B Impact Assessment. The B Impact Assessment asks questions about how the day-to-day operations of a company create positive impact for the company’s workers, community, and environment. Additionally, companies can earn further points if their overall business model can be shown to create positive social and environmental impact as well, qualifying the company for specific Impact Business Model points. There are currently over 2,100 B Corps certified by the non-profit B Corp lab to meet rigorous standards of environmental performance, accountability and transparency. Vitarock was first certified as a B Corporation in July 2015 and recertified in 2017. Becoming a B Corp has become a badge of honor for Vitarock.

What do you mean by pure, green, safe & fair?
These are the four pillars we use as benchmarks to strive toward – for ourselves and the brands we carry. Learn what each pillar means to us by clicking here.
What does Vitarock mean?
Vitarock is a portmanteau — it combines two existing words to form a new word with a novel meaning. Our company name reflects the source of our inspiration. "Vita" originates from vitae, the Latin word for life. We combined that with the essence of the phrase, "strong as a rock." merged together, Vitarock means "strength for life."
