Linwoods started out over 50 years ago as a small local shop run by the Woods family in Armagh, they diversified into a bakery and dairy business in 1980 and was run by John Woods for the next 38 years. After suffering a health setback in 1996, John became fascinated by the benefits of food for health and wellbeing. In 2002, John discovered the nutritional powerhouse that is milled Flaxseed and realised that he could make it convenient and accessible to everyone.                           

Today, Linwoods Health Foods is a market leader producing a wide range of healthy seed blends that can be easily added to many types of foods to enrich your daily diet.
