Home of Cut Rag was built with local knowledge and international expertise to cater to a specific market.  Working within the industry we saw a clear need for an independent tobacco primary facility.  Small scale local producers did not have the scale to operate their own primaries but needed access to a world class primary facility to remain competitive. We established our facility to serve multiple producers – helping them get exactly the quality and finish they want but keeping individual blend and brand information confidential.

With Brazilian technical collaboration the plant was established in 2012 and it has rapidly established itself as Southern Africa’s leading independent primary facility, in fact demand for our services is such that we now serve not only Southern Africa but clients worldwide.
