Who are We?
We’re Barrie & Ray and we give you an easy way to add nutrients to your diet so you might improve your health a little (…or a lot). Whether you’re looking for a natural way to reduce your cholesterol, you need more energy or you want to improve you concentration levels, we can help by giving you high quality chia seeds.
Chia bia all started in 2009 when co-founder Barrie Rogers discovered the power of chia seeds when he suffered a back injury while in America. The seeds were recommended to him as they were known for their anti-inflammatory properties and Barrie was willing to give anything a go as he was anxious to fly home with such pain. On stocking up on chia, the pain in his back had disappeared within a couple days and he was able to go home, sitting comfortably on his flight.
On coming home to Ireland and hearing the great reports back about the health benefits people were noticing from using the chia seeds, Barrie and Ray went in search of the best way to bring chia to Europe at a reasonable price so that more people could gain from it’s health benefits. This is when Chia bia was born.
There’s now 6 people working at Chia bia in Tramore, Co. Waterford which is a beautiful little seaside town in the sunny south east of Ireland. While Chia bia started by offering Whole and Milled Seed to the health food shops in Ireland, we now have an extensive range of products all containing Chia and our products are available in health shops, specialty stores and supermarkets across Ireland and the UK.
