  • LIA' Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    MEET LIÁ, THE MESSENIAN BLISS
    “Roots that go back in time. Branches reaching out for the sun.The pure Messenian fertile land. Our past and present on both sides of the silver-green leaf. This is our family tree. The tree we have grown up with. The respect for our culture.This is LIÁ, our nature’s goodness sealed in a white bottle.”
    LIA’ Cultivators

    Bob Studio, created an elegant brand and package design for LIÁ extra virgin olive oil. “The logo mark refers to the traditional way and means used to produce olive oil.” Bob Studio also created a decorative pattern by breaking down the logo elements, the light and delecate line quality of these pattern is also apparent in the typography of the piece – from the brand’s name to the descriptive type.

    The shape of the bottle (even without the two handles) is similar to olive oil containters that was used in Ancient Greece – these subtle hints of tradition creates a link to the heritage of the brand, without looking old or dated. LIÁ is VERY contemporary and chic, yet rich in tradition and cultural histroy. You only need to know where to look.

  • Crete governor rings alarm bells over olive oil production

    The regional governor of Crete, Stavros Arnaoutakis, on Wednesday wrote to the leadership of the Agricultural Development Ministry requesting funds to prop up the island’s olive oil producers, who are expected to face a revenue shortfall of 150 million euros this year.

    Weather conditions, and especially a warm and dry spring, have led to poor growth of the island’s olive trees, which are a mainstay of the local economy.

    Arnaoutakis said that olive farmers in Crete are facing a decline in oil production of around 60 percent as this year’s yield is not expected to exceed 40-50 tons of olive oil, compared to the 100-120 tons produced each year on average.

    The loss of revenues, the regional governor warned, will lead “to an explosive situation among the island’s olive oil producers, who already have to endure multiple hardships.

    “The problem needs to be addressed as fast as possible, so that oil producers are compensated before we are faced with an explosive situation,” he added.
