About Veritas

Ecoveritas is a company founded in 2002 by four Catalan families, who still are the owners, that joined expertise in food retailing, manufacturing and academic marketing.

Their supermarkets were born with one simple goal: bringing the best possible food to everybody, what they call the real food. And this means they offer the highest variety of organic products at their best price. This is how they are committed to the healthiest and tastiest food!

Why organic products? Their core Values:

We encourage people to lead a healthy lifestyle through food. We are what we eat. This is why we offer organic food, chemical free, hormone free, GMO free, and fully nutritious. Food that keeps what's good and contains nothing is not.

We are passionate about recovering food's original taste, as well as its aroma and color.

We source our stores from producers in the area we live in because we love our land and want our wealth to return to it. We commit ourselves with farmers and producers to longterm relationships. We select the seeds together and plan the seasons ahead. We don't buy nor generate food surplus.

We foster food diversity, because diversity make us strong today and stronger for our children's future. We recover ancient varieties that were lost and are better suited for our soil. By all this we take care of our planet.

We share B Corp values and wanted to say so. Have a picture of each of the company areas and establish continuous improvement. B Corp allows us to be part of a network of companies with the same spirit and together we are unstoppable.

The Change We Seek®

Veritas is the leading retail company in organic products in Spain, not only in sales or number of outlets, but most especially in values and the way they understand food.

What makes us a better company?
