It are exciting times for cigar producers. The new upcoming TPD is a big worry for everybody.
In case a Member State would grant the exemption for cigars, the TPD says for packets in the form of a shoulder box with a hinged lid that the general warning label must appear on the inside of the top surface that is visible when the packet is open. But in worst case senario, a Member State could decide not to grant the exemption. In this case they have to follow the cigarette guidelines, which means labeling on the top, inside, bottom, left and right side of the shoulder box.
The main construction of the new ATD facility is nearly finished.
ATD can look back at a successful Inter Tabac 2014.
