Grupo Britt N.V.: Morpho Travel Retail & Café Britt
Grupo Britt, N.V. is a holding company incorporated in Curaçao. Morpho Travel Retail focuses on gift, food, beverage, and travel shops in airports, hotels, and resorts, while Café Britt specializes in producing gourmet products, including coffee, chocolates, cookies, and more.
Grupo Britt was founded in Costa Rica in 1985 with the goal of making the country’s famed gourmet coffee available for local consumption. In 1991, the company combined coffee with tourism with the introduction of the Britt Coffee Tour, an innovative play staged in Britt’s own plantation that traces the coffee production cycle.
In 2001, Grupo Britt entered the retail market with its first kiosk at Juan Santamaría International airport in Costa Rica. Growth continued in 2003 with the addition of stores at various Costa Rican hotels popular with tourists. International expansion began in 2005 with Grupo Britt’s first store in Perú. Today, the Group has over 2000 employees in 13 different countries.
Grupo Britt today
In response to three decades of growth, Grupo Britt separated into two different companies in 2017, Morpho Travel Retail and Café Britt. Morpho Travel Retail helps make travel convenient and memorable for customers by focusing on gift, food, beverage, and travel shops in airports, hotels, and resorts. Café Britt prides itself on offering experiences to savor, whether it’s a cup of specialty coffee prepared at home, an afternoon gourmet pastry at Britt Café & Bakery, or a tour in Costa Rica learning about coffee.
Grupo Britt is particularly proud of its reputation as a socially and environmentally responsible company, focusing on the well-being of its employees, the community, and the environment.
