CHIA Sisters Chloe and Florence van Dyke
High achievers is putting it mildly when describing Chloe and Florence van Dyke, the brains behind the very successful CHIA Sisters juice drinks.
With a background in neuroscience and research into medicinal properties of plants, Chloe founded CHIA in 2012 to produce a nutritional sports-recovery drink from hydrated chia seeds and natural juices. Her sister Florence, an ex-lawyer and champion athlete, later joined her as sales and export manager.
It was Florence who participated in the Foundation’s Kiwi Young Business Leaders visit to Indonesia in 2016, when CHIA was already exporting to Singapore and Malaysia.
