Linda Kahler

Linda Kahler has served as president of Rainbow Light for more than 30 years. Under her leadership, the company introduced the food-based supplement category and has ascended to become one of the natural channel's premier brands. Rainbow Light continues to be the category leading natural vitamin for every life stage-women, prenatal, men, teens and active adults. Other industry-firsts driven by Kahler include the development of 100 percent post-consumer-recycled Eco-Guard® bottles, an innovation that now keeps 10 million plastic bottles from entering the waste-stream every year. Under Kahler, Rainbow Light became the founding supporter of Vitamin Angels, a non-profit that donates vitamins to over 30 million families a year in food insecure areas around the world. In 2014, Kahler was inducted into the Hall of Legends, an award that honors leaders who have made important contributions to the development and evolution of the natural products industry.

Rainbow Light's Linda Kahler honored with NBJ Lifetime Achievement Award Led supplements industry on social and environmental missions
Rainbow Light President Linda Kahler received a Lifetime Achievement Award Wednesday night at the NBJ Summit in Dana Point.
ood-based supplements pioneer and Rainbow Light President Linda Kahler, whose ideas and ideals continue to lead the industry in important ways, was honored with a Nutrition Business Journal lifetime achievement award last night at the NBJ Summit in Dana Point, California.
Kahler, whose tenure at Rainbow Light spans more than three decades, led the launch of the first whole-food multivitamin on the market. That ground-breaking product, Just Once, continues to be the No. 1 best-selling natural multivitamin in the United States.
Beyond product innovation, Kahler also brought strong environmental and social values into the supplement industry. Rainbow Light is the first supplement company to introduce recyclable bottles made from 100 percent recycled materials, not only diverting millions of bottles out of landfills every year, but also showing other companies that healthy products for consumers can be healthy for the planet as well. Kahler, whose company continues to support the non-profit Vitamin Angels' global mission, worked with Vitamin Angels and the World Health Association to develop a maternal health program in 1994.
Hall of Legends 2014 honoree: Linda Kahler
NBJ Summit co-founder Tom Aarts called Kahler an easy choice for the honor.
"Linda has ensured that the company gives generously to people and the planet through countless social good and sustainability programs.
Kahler got her start in the natural products industry as a teenager working in a health food store and has remained true to that mission ever since. Wednesday night, Kahler attributed much of Rainbow Light's success to her staff, many of whom have spent decades with the company, but called her first boss at that health store a primary inspiration, describing the head of the family-based Sacramento business as "passionate, dedicated, creative and quirky."
Those early years were integral to the culture and mission of Rainbow Light. "It was a very different time," she said. "People didn't come into this industry because it was a big business opportunity. Coming out of that era and that community sense helped her set the compass for Rainbow Light, particularly in the social and environmental efforts, she said. "This was part of our DNA from the start," Kahler said.
Kahler accepted the award at the most well-attended NBJ Summit in the event's history. She was inducted into the New Hope Natural Media's Hall of Legends in 2014.

DANA POINT, CA-(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2015) - Linda Kahler, president of Rainbow Light, was presented with Nutrition Business Journal's Lifetime Achievement Award at Nutrition Business Journal's (NBJ) 18th annual NBJ Summit awards dinner, July 22, at the St. Regis Hotel Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.

"Along the way Linda has ensured that the company gives generously back to people and the planet through countless social good and sustainability programs."
Kahler plays a major role in guiding Rainbow Light's business expansion, product innovation as well as environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility initiatives. Under her direction, Rainbow Light introduced the first line of food-based, one-per-day multivitamins called Just Once®, that remains the No. 1 bestselling natural multivitamin on the market. Her commitment to environmental stewardship led to the company's launch of the industry's first 100 percent recycled and 100 percent recyclable EcoGuard™ bottles that are responsible for eliminating massive amounts of plastic from landfills. Kahler also led the first maternal health social good initiative in 1994, with industry nonprofit, Vitamin Angels and the World Health Organization by developing an innovative, high-impact global aid program, resulting in more than 40 million worldwide supplement donations to date.

"Rainbow Light is the number one selling multivitamin brand in the natural channel," explains Linda Kahler, Rainbow Light's president and CEO. "Ours are the top selling women's, men's, prenatal, senior and teen multivitamins, as well as the top selling vitamin D gummy. It's a natural progression for us to apply our research-based formulating expertise to develop leading-edge gummy formulations that support a stronger state of health for our customers of all ages." Earlier this year, Kahler was honored with the Nutrition Business Journal 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award for her passionate and tireless work with Rainbow Light's philanthropies and natural supplement innovations. Last year, she was inducted into the Natural Products 2014 Hall of Legends at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA.
