british american tobacco nigeria - Manufacturing



ManufacturingAt our company's factory,  the matured tobacco is checked for quality and then carefully blended with other ingredients which the brand recipe may call for, such as flavourings or pre-processed tobacco.  Keeping track of the various types of tobacco and blend components is key and computers are increasingly used to track production runs.

Cigarette making, once done entirely by hand, is today almost fully automated, with the cut tobacco, cigarette paper and filters continuously fed into the cigarette-making machines. The technology has advanced dramatically over the years, but quality is not forgotten; each cigarette is automatically quality controlled to ensure that it meets every aspect of its specification.

As packing machines put the cigarettes into the familiar brand packs, wrap the packs in protective film, and group them into cartons and cases, further testing takes place at each stage to make sure the cigarettes are consistently high quality.  The completed cases, time-dated to ensure the freshest product possible, are then ready for distribution.
