Chia Bia’s seeds of success
Chia Bia first started when Barrie Rogers discovered the power of chia seeds when he suffered a back injury while on holiday in America. The seeds were recommended to him as they were known for their anti- inflammatory properties and Barrie experienced first-hand the health benefits of chia.
On returning to Ireland, hearing the great reports people were sharing after using chia seeds, Barrie went in search of the best way to bring chia to Europe so that more people could gain from its health benefits. This is when Chia Bia was co- founded by Barrie and Ray Owens.
Based in the South East of Ireland, Chia Bia is one of Europe’s largest suppliers of chia seeds, selling in over 2000 outlets worldwide.
