When Colin and Maureen Diamond decided to invest in Rose-Hip Vital, they had no idea just how many Australians would come to rely on their product for joint pain relief - nor how many of their loyal supporters would have four legs!
In 2008, Colin and Maureen were volunteering with the Australian not-for-profit, ClothesLine, when they first heard mention of the overseas wonder product, Rose-Hip Vital. Described to them as a revolutionary, wholly-natural anti-inflammatory, the Diamonds decided to try the product out for themselves. They were immediately blown away by the improvement they felt in their own joint health and wellbeing.
Knowing there was a huge opportunity for this amazing product at home in Australia, they soon became the exclusive distributors of Rose-Hip Vital down under.
Colin and Maureen built the brand up from humble beginnings. Before starting, they knew little of the pharmaceutical or complementary health industries. They'd barely even heard of their own star ingredient: the powerhouse rosehip berry.
After a television promotion catapulted Rose-Hip Vital into the lives of thousands of new Australian fans, the Diamonds had well and truly hit the ground running.
Knowing they needed additional support, they set up Rose-Hip Vital Head Quarters in Chatswood and began recruiting. The group that joined Maureen and Colin during the early days of expansion continue to work at their Chatswood office today.
The Diamonds truly believe that success is a team effort, and this value is infused in everything they do.
One of Rose-Hip Vital’s earliest recruits was their son, Russell, who worked diligently to bring Rose-Hip Vital to the shelves of pharmacies across Australia. Russell's work ensured their affordable, non-synthetic anti-inflammatory was accessible to as many Australian households as possible.
Closely following Russell was their second son, Justin, who brought along his love of animals, and was instrumental in launching Rose-Hip Vital’s Canine and Equine branches.
Rose-Hip Vital truly is a family business, with two generations of Diamonds at the helm, and a team that has been with them since the beginning. The Diamonds wouldn’t have it any other way.
Showing up to work every day alongside family and friends; seeing the real-world benefits of their products in the thousands of testimonials they receive; and educating the community and health professionals alike about the benefits of the amazing rosehip - these are just a few of the many reasons why Colin and Maureen love what they do.
They understand the value of Rose-Hip Vital is so much more than it's product value. It’s what it allows you to do. It’s the relief it brings from chronic obstacles and the freedom it allows you to move. It’s the anti-inflammatory the Diamonds themselves use everyday to support them through conferences and exhibitions, and to relieve their own conditions like bursitis, bulging discs and Polymyalgia Rheumatica.
It was a meeting of chance and philanthropy that introduced the Diamonds to Rose-Hip Vital, a meeting that would blossom into a revolution.
Welcome to the Rose-Hip Vital family. We’re so happy to have you here.
