How it all began

The company began as a bulk food store franchise in 1979. Kardish has been operating for over 35 years, but its 9 stores across Ottawa are clean and modern, offering a wide selection of specialty health and bulk foods, gluten-free products, natural health and beauty aids, vitamins, and natural health supplements. Whether you’re starting down a healthier path or have been traveling it for years, Kardish welcomes you.

Also, they hire and train health enthusiasts who are passionate and educated about the food and products carried at Kardish. Nutritionists, personal trainers, culinary experts, and dietary specialists all play an important role in providing expert service and up-to-date information to Kardish’s customers.

Kardish Health Food Centre has been proud to carry Green Beaver in its stores since 2003. It’s a great partnership:  Kardish customers understand the importance of using products that are made close to Ottawa, and that offer a healthy and effective alternative to mainstream brands.

Alain Ménard, co-founder of The Green Beaver Company, find that Kardish is an important retail partner. And, Kardish stores offer an open and supportive atmosphere, along with attentive and knowledgeable staff.  They represent a great opportunity for people who want to explore healthier alternatives to get the help and support that they need.

“Our customers love Green Beaver products, especially the sunscreens and toothpastes,” Kardish President Robert Assaf says. “They love that these top-quality products are made close to home, and provide a safe and effective alternative for their families.”
