Since 1978 the Kaplan family has owned and operated Rainbow Foods with the support of the amazing Rainbow Foods team.

We are excited to share our exciting news with our wonderful community!

The Kaplan family has chosen to step away and it is with great pleasure that we announce that Rainbow Foods has been sold to another great local Ottawa family.

Rainbow Foods is now part of the Natural Food Pantry family of stores led by Rick Payant and his team!

Natural Food Pantry has been a part of our community for over 39 years and has 4 other Ottawa locations to serve you.

We intend to make this a seamless transition. Rick, along with our current team of Rainbow Foods employees, are committed to providing you the same superior level of customer service in our Britannia neighbourhood.

In the coming weeks you can look forward to small changes taking place as we prepare for a complete change over in the new year when our location at 1487 Richmond Road proudly transitions into the fifth Natural Food Pantry location. 

The Rainbow Foods website and online store are no longer active, however we think you’ll enjoy a far broader experience and product offering with the Natural Food Pantry online store.

We have options for Local Ottawa Fresh Delivery, Curbside Pickup and Courier Delivery.

If you've previously placed an order through the Rainbow Foods online store, it will be fulfilled.

Rainbow Foods Gift Cards & Healthy Reward Points

Your Healthy Rewards Points and Rainbow Foods gift cards will remain unaffected and you can continue to use them at Rainbow Foods as you always have.

Rest assured, the value of your points and the value of your gift cards will be transitioned over to the Natural Food Pantry platform once the change occurs.
