Kelly tells you about National Nutrition

Welcome to National Nutrition!

As you can tell from our name, we’re available to natural health product shoppers across Canada (and the rest of the world) – but also locally through our retail warehouse outlet in Orillia, Ontario. We’re no stranger or newbie to the health food industry either; we founded National Nutrition in 1996 to bring quality nutritional supplements through our mail order catalogue – as this was before the internet – to customers across the country. And through a lot of hard work and the dedication of our customers to improving their health, the rest is history. Today we’re one of Canada’s largest retailers of natural health products.

Team Leader, Order Packing

National Nutrition is a company unlike any other. When I first started, I was captivated by the level of positivity and care that each employee contributes to this growing company. I started in a junior position here at National Nutrition and within 2 years have advanced far beyond what I could have ever expected. I am proud to work for a company that recognizes and rewards their employees. National Nutrition is for me a family away from home and I look forward to coming to work every single day. If your looking to grow both personally and professionally, it starts here, it starts with National Nutrition. Abby

Video Director, Assistant Marketing Manager

When I first started at National Nutrition the position was a 3 month contract and it was simply going to be a “job”. A means to an end you could say. What I did not expect to find was an incredibly rewarding and enriching atmosphere, along with the most amazing group of co-workers that I have ever known. I have advanced within this company more in the previous two years that I ever have at any other establishment; I contribute this to the fact that I love what I do. My “job” search ended with National Nutrition…and it became my career! Kaylee

Assistant Manager, Shipping
