Godfrey Phillips India has an independent ‘leaf division’ in the tobacco growing area of Guntur in Southern India, which gives us access to the best quality of tobaccos.
Our leaf team includes some of the most experienced professionals in the industry. And we are one of the few leaf operation companies in India to have our own R&D, as well as a state-of-the-art QA facility to support operations.
Our teams work with farmers to implement GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) to enhance productivity and improve the quality of tobacco, while keeping it free of chemicals and pesticides.
We have two captive Threshing Plants equipped with the latest technologies to process tobacco for the domestic as well as export markets. We manufacture composite leaf blends and cut tobacco for large clients worldwide. And to develop the ideal blend, our manufacturing division’s state-of-the-art quality control set up also has nicotine and sugar estimation auto analyzers.
Godfrey Phillips India’s tobacco reaches some of the biggest manufacturers in the industry today, including Philip Morris, ITG, JTI, Eastern Co., European Tobacco, Libyan Tobacco Company and RNTA. We are the first leaf operations company to receive the ISO-9001 certification.
