Recognized Traders in the Tobacco Industry
Raw tobacco leaves are processed by air-curing in on-site treatment facilities. Being a natural curing process, air-curing is the longest, though the most fruitful method of tobacco processing, since it results in low-sugar, slightly sweet-flavour tobacco rich in aroma and with higher level of nicotine.
When being processed, tobacco is hung in well-ventilated barns for six to eight weeks. During this time, persistent control management over the facility conditions has to be carried out, ensuring proper temperature and moisture levels in order to prevent mold and rotting. At this stage, additional heating sources can be engaged to regulate the processing environment.
When the curing process is complete, tobacco is taken down and stripped into three stalk positions (lug, second and leaf). Each stalk position is then segregated for proper storing and exporting.
