Nelson's Chia Sisters singled out by Forbes magazine as notable entrepreneurs

It's been a big few months for two Nelson sisters who make juice drinks.

Florence and Chloe Van Dyke have taken their factory solar, won an outstanding NZ food producer award, and now they've been singled out by Forbes.

The US business magazine named the pair, known as the Chia Sisters, as some of the most notable entrepreneurs in Asia, under 30.

"We always try and push the boundaries in everything we do, so it was great to be recognised as game changers this week," Florence told Seven Sharp.

The sisters initially thought it was an April Fools joke they had made Forbes' list.

"We just kept scrolling online, going is this right?" Chloe said.

Last year the company became New Zealand's first solar powered juicer which Florence says is one reason they may have made the list.
