Vitamix: A Commitment to Healthy Eating
The founder of the Vitamix brand, nicknamed â€œPapa Barnard", opened Barnard Sales Co. in 1921 in Cleveland, Ohio. Then, he and his family changed to a vegetarian and whole-food diet in response to the chronic illness of a family member, and noticed a stark change in their way of life, realizing the power of whole foods. Renaming the business â€œNatural Foods Institute" and focusing on healthy eating was the next step for the business, which introduced the Vitamix in 1937. Since that point, Vitamix has continued to pioneer in the blender world along with being an influential voice in the healthy eating revolution. One way that Vitamix displayed its passion for healthy foods was through Ruth Barnard's 500 recipe cookbook which featured wholesome recipes from 1949. Additionally, Vitamix aired the first-ever infomercial in 1949, promoting Vitamix's health benefits and displaying how the blender is used. Reportedly, the company would have to sell 18 blenders to make up for the cost of the advertisement, but on that night alone, sold 400 blenders.
Vitamix continued to be led by the Barnard family until 2022 when Steve Laserson was named CEO. Today, Vitamix blenders are a staple in casual kitchens and restaurants alike, offering a quick, clean, and delicious way to prepare whole foods for a healthy lifestyle.
