Villiger opens a new factory in Brazil: Villiger Do Brasil. The modern operation replaces the previous subsidiary Charutos Tobajara Limitada created in 1979.
Villiger imports and uses Brazilian leaves since 1888; the new operation was inaugurated under the watchful eyes of Heinrich Villiger, who considers himself proud of the tobaccos used in his products.
Villiger Do Brasil is located in Feira de Santana, in the state of Bahia. It will produce only Brazilian puros, such as Villiger San’Doro Maduro, and the exclusive European brands: Villiger Celebration and La Corrida.
