Inspection of Tobaccos
of all Provenances
Leaf tobaccos are inspected for dampness, mildew, insect contamination and the condition of the packing (i.e. marks, whether there are any deformed bales or bales with spotty or damaged wrapping).
A quality control is simultaneously carried out covering such aspects as smell, leaf structure/fineness and leaf size and length, colour grading and percentage of broken leaf.
