The Chia Sisters is the kind of food company we dream of in New Zealand. Lovingly created by a family business and bottled in a solar-powered factory, this healthy energy drink is delicious, premium, and wholly sourced from local ingredients. The company is certified carbon positive, pays its workers a living wage, and is a founding member of Future Foods Aotearoa, a network of pioneering food companies that’s making the ‘volume to value’ story a reality. Is it too good to be true? Vincent spoke to founders, sisters Florence and Chloe van Dyke, about their vision for a different kind of food company and just how ambitious a sustainable operation like this can be.
