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.

"With Linda's leadership during the past three decades, Rainbow Light has truly become a pioneer in producing higher quality supplements that really reach out to specific audiences," said Tom Aarts, NBJ Summit co-founder and member of NBJ's Editorial Advisory Board for Lifetime Achievement Awards. "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.
