Englewood Cliffs, N.J. - Unilever announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire SmartyPants Vitamins, a U.S.‐based Vitamin, Mineral & Supplement company.

We are excited to work with co‐founders Courtney and Gordon and their team to grow their innovative and data driven business model.'

Rooted in the belief that good health should be made accessible to everybody, SmartyPants Vitamins has a long‐standing partnership with non‐profit organization, Vitamin Angels, to provide life‐changing vitamins for mothers, expectant mothers, and children in need worldwide.
