"Our family has not only dedicated itself
to the production of simple products,
but to the creation of consummateabsolute
moments of pleasure."
Jean-Pierre Heintz, in the spring of 1853.
The things we enjoy also evolve - largely shaped by large and small innovations that make the use of tobacco in its present form, variety and quality possible in the first place. Many of these ideas come from us.
We therefore have continuously improved our production technology in terms of quality and effectiveness. We have developed new tobacco products that meet the taste, lifestyle, but also the handling requirements of people who enjoy life just for the pleasure of it. Some of these are produced in our subsidiaries, which have the freedom to independently develop new products. This openness makes us one of the most innovation-friendly companies in our industry.
