Chia Bia’s seeds of suc­cess

Irish Examiner - Supplement - - FOOD & DRINK IRELAND - CHIA BIA

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.

“Our vi­sion is to con­sis­tently de­liver high qual­ity prod­ucts that of­fer con­sumers a health­ier choice. We are com­mit­ted to the qual­ity of our chia seeds. We only work with chia sup­pli­ers who have a di­rect re­la­tion­ship with their grow­ers. Fur­ther to this, we nu­tri­tion­ally an­a­lyse each batch of seeds to en­sure they meet our strict nu­tri­tional cri­te­ria. Our dy­namic and ex­pert team are ded­i­cated to cre­at­ing prod­ucts that make it eas­ier for you to make healthy food choices.

“We love shar­ing chia inspired recipes, healthy liv­ing tips and any other fun & in­ter­est­ing news. Our grow­ing prod­uct range in­cludes Whole Chia Seed, Milled Chia Seed, Milled Fruit Mixes, Chia Sachets, Chia Oil Cap­sules & Chia Bars. We are com­mit­ted to grow­ing the chia seed mar­ket and that’s why you will al­ways find chia seeds in any Chia Bia prod­uct!”
