Profile Last Updated: March 12, 2009
One of the first retailers in Canada to sell bulk food at low prices, Ambrosia Natural Foods offers items such as nuts, dried fruits, snacks and baking goods that never go out of style. The former health food boutique is now a supermarket specializing in packaged natural foods, organic fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals, cosmetics, meat, fish, dairy, frozen entrées and more. The store remains directly connected to its community, acting on customer suggestions as often as possible, with full-time nutritionists and vitamin experts supplying in-store advice. Fitness and sports nutrition, anti-aging and weight management products are staples on Ambrosia’s shelves amongst all the other essentials required for a better, healthier life.
Ambrosia Natural Foods hosts many special events each week, including seminars, book signings and product demonstrations, and also offers exclusive opportunities to sample new innovations in nutrition and wellness. The store frequently spotlights independent companies, giving shoppers a chance to explore innovative products. Ambrosia’s response to popular demand has led to developments such as adding dry organic goods to the bulk food area and dedicating a section of the store to wheat-free and gluten-free foods. The book section carries many hard-to-find titles, along with essential references on herbs, vitamins, homeopathic remedies, cancer, diabetes, cookbooks and more.
The grocery shelves at Ambrosia are filled with packaged foods and beverages, plus natural cleaning products. There’s a complete selection of supplements, protein bars and shakes, immune boosters, cleansing and aromatherapy products. The produce section varies seasonally, and the organic fruits and vegetables are priced competitively. Freshly baked breads, cookies and pastries are prepared without preservatives. The demo section of the store is always popular, with the free samples often accompanied by promotional discounts.
