Core Competence

PRIMARY

TURNING LEAF INTO FINISHED CUT-RAGS

In manufacturing cut-rags, the process basically converts tobacco leaves that arrive in cases into batches of cut rag that is ready to be made into cigarettes. All tobacco leaves that are delivered to the factory are checked for quality and carefully processed together with other ingredients that a brand recipe may call for.

A special feature of our factory is the CRES line which produces cut rolled expanded stems (CRES). CRES reduces the cigarette weight while preserving the natural tobacco taste. It also has the ability to increase the filling power and burn rate which in turn reduces the number of puffs as well as reduces the tar and nicotine deliveries per cigarette.
