Employer Profile - VitaHealth

Vita Health Fresh Market is the leader in the natural products industry. As a third generation, family-owned Manitoba company, their mission is to empower people to lead healthy lives.

“We are fortunate to be in a growing industry,” said Brenda Comte, General Manager. “Organics, GMO-Free and vitamins/supplements are still very much in demand and will continue to be with our aging population and more awareness of health issues.”

The company offers a variety of career options and Comte says retail is a dynamic industry with many opportunities. “We believe in retail as a career and have many success stories of staff starting in their teens in the stores and working into management positions. There are stock room, store floor/customer service and office positions offering diverse and challenging career options.”

Vita Health Fresh Market was one of the first health food stores in Canada and has been serving the community since 1936. “We hear many stories about how our products and people have helped make a difference in people’s lives – from their grandparents to their children,” said Comte. “The environment we work in, the people we work with and the benefits we receive are all fantastic.”

Vita Health Fresh Market is always looking for great people and Comte believes in hiring for attitude and training for skills. “We look for staff who are passionate about health and who want to deliver a high level of service in all that they do. We truly are a family atmosphere and our industry is contagious, very few people leave the health food industry once they are immersed into it.”
