Britt Shop supports the work of craftsmen and small and medium companies in Latin America. Handicrafts and iconic products from each country reflect the talent and innovation of local artists and entrepreneurs.
These strategic linkages are strengthened by various training programs and promotions. In every country where it has gift shops for tourists, Britt Shop creates strong alliances with artisans and entrepreneur organizations through training, advice and monitoring.
In recent years, we have established partnerships to highlight the innovative work of craftsmen, particularly in Costa Rica. This included Feria Nuestra Esencia in alliance with BAC San José and the government agency PROCOMER. In addition, between 2007 and 2014, the Programa de Mejora Artesanal (PMA) was implemented in conjunction with the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Commerce (MEIC) and the Instituto Tecnológico (TEC) to strengthen support and training of these artists and business people
