rND Bakery: About Us

More and more people are discovering our local bakery and loving the products so we and want to re-introduce ourselves to share more about our company, our values and more!

Who We Are:

We are a local bakery focused on great tasting bread using a simple set of ingredients to keep our products gluten-free and tasting great.

For us, making bread is a craft - we’re not in a hurry because we’ve developed the unique craft of making self-rising bread using the most nutritious grain we consume, oats. 

Oats provide our bread with the right amount of chew and great taste while also being gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and vegan.

What We Do:

The namesake of our bakery, rue Notre Dame bakery, also stands for research and development that drives our innovative baking process. Combining the scientific method with our passion for baking, we are committed to continuous improvement. It is through this iterative process that we are able to create great tasting gluten-free bread that people in our local community have been searching for. 

Our ultimate goal is to provide our customers with options that give them the control they need to effectively manage their diet. Gluten-free bread suffers from a tarnished legacy because it was never able to provide the same satisfaction as bread made from traditional grains would bring. 

With a greater demand for great tasting healthier alternatives , we have created simple, great-tasting bread full of life  that provides comfort  to those whose dietary restrictions prevent them from enjoying bread again. 

Using a simple set of ingredients we focus our efforts on making bread that improves gut health. With a well established clinical connection between our health and the food we eat, stretching back to the ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates, we follow the principle of food as medicine and through this understanding create bread  that people are looking for.

rND and the Community

Supporting Local

We are a registered member of Ontario Made and through our partnerships with local farmers we are able to reduce our environmental footprint while providing the freshest possible oats for our customers. 

Proudly Vegan

All of our products are vegan. 

Ontario Oats 

Our bakery is located in South-Eastern Ontario providing products to customers in the Kingston, Brockville and the Ottawa/Gatineau regions, We predominantly use locally grown hulless oats and a small amount of covered oats from Saskatchewan. The combination of the two oats provides us with the flexibility we need to convert oats into bread.
