Welcome to “Pioneering Greeks”, the column of GTP Headlines, which highlights the Greeks that stand out for their creative thinking in the business world. “Pioneering Greeks” is a collaboration between LoveGreece.com and Greek Travel Pages (GTP).
This week we introduce Christina Stribakou, co-founder of the LIÁ Cultivators, a company that specializes in the production of extra virgin olive oil.
Cristina Stribakou and her brother Konstantinos founded LIÁ Cultivators, in order to share with the world a 100% natural product combining the high standards of production and the values of a family business.
LIÁ premium extra virgin olive oil is produced in Stribakou’s family olive grove in Messinia and travels all over the world.
“LIÁ is our bliss in a bottle… Our olive oil on your table will offer you, along its superior flavor, a warm and true smile coming from our family,” the company says on its website.
The product has also won many awards in international competitions and has been included on quality lists. According to the world ranking of olive oil, LIÁ is among the top three of the best olive oils of koroneiki variety.
“Once a partner said to me, every time I try LIÁ, in addition to the flavors and aromas of your nature, I also taste the love with which it has been made,” Christina said.

With their ethos and vision, Greece’s entrepreneurs and professionals are an important aspect of the country worth highlighting to the world.
