The roots of the company date back to 1940 when Motta and Motta, located in the city of Colon, began selling duty-free liquors and perfumes to tourists as they travelled the Panama Canal. Renamed Motta Internacional SA in 1949, the company opened the first duty-free store in the Western Hemisphere at the Tocumen Airport. This enterprise was the basis of the duty-free store that the company would open in 1952 in the fledgling Colon Free Zone, and it would quickly become a model for similar stores throughout the world.
Currently, the company continues to experience explosive growth, with a strong presence throughout Latin America. Motta Internacional SA stores can be found in more than twenty countries in Central America, the Caribbean and South America, and the company which started with just three employees, now has a team that numbers in the hundreds.
