Leaf Buying.

All tobacco sales in Zimbabwe are controlled by the Tobacco Industry and Marketing Board (TIMB) to ensure an orderly exchange of tobacco between the grower and the buyer. ATZ has employed qualified and experienced tobacco buyers who properly adhere to the TIMB flue cured tobacco buying regulations. The buyers are responsible for inspecting the green leaf tobacco classification, defects, moisture level, temperature, packaging , non-tobacco related material and setting of prices per bale per classified grade. Our highly qualified buying team also assists our growers with technical tobacco grading knowledge,balling and presentation advice to equip our growers so that they realize the highest return per dollar invested.
