This holiday season give a little extra special gift that warms the heart and the belly!

A Krinos homemade gift basket combines the comforts of the holidays – great food and tradition. Since we happen to be experts in both we’d like to offer some helpful suggestions for your basket.

For the baker on your list, we suggest including products like Attiki Honey or Cinnamon Candy. If you have someone who appreciates classic Greek imports, you can’t go wrong with Organic Kalamata Gold Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Mountain Oregano, Greek Barrel-aged Feta and Organic Mountain Tea. And for the charcuterie board lovers we have Olive Meze, Vlahotiri (Hard Cheese) and Balsamic Glaze.

Still can’t decide? That’s ok, you can combine them all to make an incredible gift basket with the finest products of Greece!

Happy Holidays!

Canadian Paralympic Sprinter Marissa Papaconstantinou Sponsored by Krinos Canada

Krinos Canada announces its partnership with Toronto, Ontario sprinter Marissa Papaconstantinou. The Canadian record holder and Ryerson sports media student is a medal favourite heading into the 2019 World Para Athletics Championships in Dubai this November. But her ultimate goal is to be atop the podium at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics. 

Being born without a right foot has never got in the way of Marissa pursuing what she wanted to achieve in life. Originally a soccer and basketball player, Marissa fell in love with track after being fitted for her first running blade at the age of 12 at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. She joined a local track club and a year later was the Canadian record holder. At the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, Marissa finished 9th in the 100m but was disqualified during the 200m finals for stepping on the line. Seeking redemption at the 2017 World Championships, Marissa placed 6th in the 100m. Then while sprinting to the finish line in podium position in the 200m, Marissa tore her hamstring. Despite agonizing pain and heartbreak, she got up and finished the race in dramatic fashion, with the support of 40,000 cheering fans. Images from that moment went viral on social media all around the world.

Fully recovered from her injury, Marissa has continued to improve her personal best times. At a recent competition in Switzerland, Marissa took a half-second off her 100m PB and became the 100m and 200m Canadian record holder in her class.

Marissa was born and raised in Toronto where she currently resides, trains and studies. Marissa is an experienced public speaker and she hope’s her story and journey of hard work and perseverance will inspire young Canadians and bring to light the amazing talents of Canadian Paralympic Athletes.


Prior to bursting onto the world stage at the 2015 World Championships at just 16 years of age, Marissa had spent most summers with her family in Greece. She carries a deep pride of her heritage and has a fondness for Greek cuisine. 

As Krinos Canada’s newest ambassador, Marissa will be featured in an upcoming ad campaign and making some appearances to promote their Greek line of food products. “We’ve been drawn to Marissa because she embodies the best of Greek heritage, Canadian pride, determination and inspiration. These qualities reflect our business values and after meeting with her in person we knew it was the perfect fit.” said Alexander Georgiadis, President, Krinos Canada.

Krinos’ goal is to support Marissa not only financially but also help her achieve her ultimate goal of raising awareness for Paralympic sports.

New Cheese Plant in Edmonton

Krinos Canada is excited to introduce a new member of the family – Tiras Dairies – a cheese plant in Camrose near Edmonton, Alberta. Town Mayor Norman Mayer and Krinos President Alexander Georgiadis, along with 45 Krinos key employees and Canadian brokers, travelled to Alberta to officially cut the ribbon and open the new facility.

Since purchasing the plant, Krinos has introduced a completely new, state-of-the-art production line that produces a wide range of domestic feta cheeses using 100% fresh Canadian milk, all the while maintaining traditional Greek processes.

Plant Manager and Master Cheese Maker Emanuel Georgandelis, makes sure of it. The seasoned cheese maker was brought from Greece to oversee the production, ensuring Krinos’ feta cheese is created with all the authentic methods of traditional Greek making. And it’s paying off.

In 2018, Krinos’ “Traditional Greek Feta” won the Canadian Cheese Award for “Best Feta in Brine”. This cheese is produced at Tiras Dairies.

And there’s more to come. Keep an eye out for new, more convenient and consumer-friendly packaging to be rolled out in the next few weeks. Plus, even more expansions to keep up with growing production.
