Farm Boy announced today they have acquired Ottawa’s beloved Rideau Bakery from the Kardish family and is working on a plan that will keep the iconic brand alive in Farm Boy stores across Ontario.
Farm Boy CEO Jeff York said since the announcement the Rideau Bakery, an Ottawa institution for almost 90 years, would be closing, members of the Farm Boy executive team began working with the Kardish family to come to the agreement.
Louis Kardish on behalf of the family said “we will see the tradition of our grandmother’s old-world, kosher baking live on.”
Three generations of the Kardish family have worked in the kosher bakery since it was established around 1930.
