Australia Sees Big Bakery Industry Potential For Its Tiny Chia Plant

January 25, 2010: 04:02 AM EST
Australia’s six-year-old Chia Company recently completed a national supply partnership with Bakers Delight to provide the obscure ancient grain to 650 bakeries in Australia and New Zealand. Chia, whose tiny seed is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, protein and antioxidants, is being grown in Western Australia as part of the Ord River Irrigation project, a $415 million state-federal partnership. According to FoodWeek Online, the Chia Company and the bakery network expect Chia production to double in 2010, and industry value to hit $20 million in five years. So far, 95 percent of Australian Chia seed is exported.
