Supplement your life

Looking to make some changes to your health? Curious about which vitamins are right for your lifestyle? Or maybe you just want to know the difference between B6 and B12? Well, Swiss Natural™ is here to help you every step of the way on your journey to good health.

We’re a Canadian leader in vitamins, supplements, and minerals. Our innovative products help you make the most out of each day. They’re safe, effective, and scientifically formulated from natural sources. Our team of experts, including a naturopathic doctor and nutritionist,
are always here to support you – just ask!

Let us tell you a little bit about our story. We’ve been supplementing lives since 1965. It all started with Rolf Zimmerman and his wife, a German baker and registered nurse, who shared extensive knowledge and passion for nutrition and natural remedies. In 1952 they came to Toronto, Canada and opened a bakery business, but it soon evolved into the perfect blend of their two professions: a natural health food store. The couple would import herbals from their homeland for local consumers and soon the demand for their natural remedies became so strong that they closed their store and focused on developing, manufacturing, and distributing products to natural health retailers across the country.

We hope to inspire people to lead healthier, more fulfilled lives by developing, manufacturing, and marketing natural health products of the highest quality. Let’s share, learn and experience a healthy lifestyle together!

Product Commitment

Our team has an unwavering commitment to product quality. We follow the regulations and quality standards set by Health Canada, who also provides us with the Site Licence that confirms our compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). This standard is recognized and practiced throughout the world as a measure of safety, effectiveness and quality.

Our raw materials are only sourced from trusted suppliers and subjected to a comprehensive set of defined laboratory tests to ensure their purity, potency, and stability.

More than 300 tests are in the raw material stage, during the production process as well as the finished product testing. Our facility is engineered to ensure sanitary operations and prevention of cross-contamination. Quality controls are maintained with the highest values and our partners are constantly commenting how we go above and beyond the standard!

We’re committed to educating our consumers about the product directly on the label, so feel free to contact us for more information or to speak with our bilingual Nutritionist at 800-268-9879 x 286.

With over 45 years’ experience under our belt, Swiss Natural™ will continue to produce quality products and support you in every way possible.

Our Partners

Breakfast for Learning™ – proud supporter since 2010!

We believe in the importance of providing children with the proper nutrition to feed their bodies and minds so they can learn and grow. After all, health conscious children grow to become health conscious adults.

That is why we are a proud supporter of Breakfast for Learning, the first and largest national charity dedicated to the direct support of school nutrition programs and the healthy development of children and youth. Breakfast for Learning has been helping to support and sustain school based breakfast, snack and lunch programs since 1992.

Our partnership allows us to combine our dedication to health, wellness and nutrition with Breakfast for Learning’s vision to ensure that all kids in Canada attend school well nourished, improving their ability to learn, giving them the best chance of success in life.

We plan to demonstrate our dedication to health, wellness and nutrition by embracing that vision in our fundraising initiatives, causal-marketing programs and employee volunteering.

Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) – proud member since 1982!

The CHFA is Canada’s largest national trade association dedicated to the natural and organic products industry. Members represent the entire supply chain and their products support Canadians seeking optimal health and quality of life.

We leverage their knowledge and resources to remain informed of industry news and opportunities. We also participate in their national tradeshows – keeping us connected to our retailers, distributors and other manufacturers.

Our Obligation to Mother Nature

We are passionate about the health benefits that nature can deliver to Canadians— we’re called Swiss Natural™ for a reason! We also realize that we have a responsibility to take care of our environment.
That’s why we:

  • Installed shrink bundling equipment on all packaging lines that use 100% recyclable low-density polyethylene film. Thus reducing our amount of cardboard used by 108,000 lbs. annually.
  • Switched our bottles to HDPE, a 100% recyclable material endorsed in all communities.
  • Recycle an additional 87,000 lbs of paper, corrugate and plastic waste annually.
