Chia Bia started when Barrie 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 coming home to Ireland and 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 born!
Chia Bia consistently delivers high quality products that offer consumers a healthier choice. Chia Bia is now available in all leading Irish retailers and in over 2000 stores worldwide.
The growing product range includes Whole Chia Seed, Milled Chia Seed, Milled Fruit Mixes, Chia Sachets & Chia Bars.

As well as financially supporting local sports teams and community groups, Chia Bia have also committed to increasing awareness of health benefits of Chia and healthy eating with these clubs and participating in events such as sports days etc.
