Tobacco Wholesale & Exporter Africa
Tobacco is an extremely robust plant and able to grow in various climates and soils. It can be cultivated on marginal lands which are not very good for food production. It is grown in warm climates with rich well-drained soil which is ample in Africa. Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Malawi are the top producers and exporters of tobacco. Tanzania comes second.
Tobacco accounts for over 60% of the continent’s total annual earnings and the African government based on an economic point of view promote tobacco farming. Tobacco farming generates export earnings and promotes local economic development.
Tobacco leaves are harvested when leaves turn from dark to light green. They are handpicked just like tea leaves to get the best quality tobacco. The leaves change color at the base and the harvesting of the leaves takes place over a nine-week period. Machine adapted plants are of lower grade than tobacco plants that are harvested manually.
We purchase tobacco directly from the farmers, then process, and sell a variety of flue-cured, burley, dark air-cured, and oriental tobaccos. We support farmers by buying their produce at the best price but do not manufacture consumer tobacco products.
We collect the harvested tobacco leaves and cure them in large coal-fired ovens. Heat is distributed evenly by a fan. Then the leaves undergo a misting process, grading and packed for delivery. We provide a variety of tobacco like the air-cured, Burley tobacco, Connecticut Broadleaf, Connecticut Shade, Dark Air-Cured, Dark Fired-Cured, Flue-Cured Virginia, Oriental, Sun-Cured, and many more.
