Christoforos Kekakos, president and founder of Lakonic Sun, was born and raised in Lakonia, which is in southern Greece. The Kekakos family can trace its roots in Lakonia for over 400 years. His father, Pavlos Kekakos was a merchant sailor where he learned about international trade.
He was fortunate that his family made olive oil, and that honey, raw sea salt,olives,wild oregano were part of his daily life.
Christoforos studied marketing and sales in the United States of America and also worked in Greece as a tourist guide where he taught visitors about the beauty and history of Greece.
His family always ate a true Mediterranean diet.
His grandparents Filenia and Christoforos Gklezakos and also his mother Helena Kekakos-Gklezakos, taught him to appreciate these natural foods.
Christoforos used to spend time on his family farms by olive trees and smelling the crisp air blowing from the Mediterranean Sea.
He wants to share these authentic Greek products available through Lakonic Sun.
Christoforos would like to thank the partners and suppliers who work with Lakonic Sun LLC, and also his uncle Michalis Gklezakos (professor at university of Piraeus in Greece) for the guidance and assistance .
