Grupo Kuri is a company, based in San José, Costa Rica, that produces flour tortillas.

The company became familar with WEConnect International at a welcome breakfast organized by WEConnect International in Costa Rica to meet other women-owned businesses. Two weeks after meeting with WEConnect International representatives, the company became certified.

Certification Leads to Contracts!

Grupo Kuri hopes to sell its unique products both nationally and internationally thanks to WEConnect International and the Inter American Development Bank in providing the opportunity to participate in LacFlavors in Granada, Nicaragua.

As a result of becoming certified, Grupo Kuri is now doing business with Johana Morris de Morrjonssa (Tropics Nature), Walmart and Quizno's. The company has expanded, and expects to continue to grow, as it innovates and brings new products to the market, such as canastas horneadas tostadas, tortillas horneadas, and other gourmet snacks. As a small family business, access to the large WEConnect International network has been a big advantage. Grupo Kuri looks foward to continue to innovate its products and expand to new markets.

In their own words, Grupo Kuri "values the business training, networking and marketing opportunities as well as the assistance offered by WEConnect representatives in the Costa Rican office."
