Guided tour of a Cigar factoryBack
This experience takes place in a cigar factory in Katunayake, one of the nine Free Trade Zones (FTZ) established in the country. Tobacco from all parts of the world arrive at the factory, located within the Free Trade Zone, set up to benefit the island’s economy and its people.
Visit a tobacco processing factory in Katunayake, minutes from the Colombo International Airport, and follow the journey of the tobacco leaves from arrival to packaging for export. Once the tobacco arrives, 2000 trained staff process these delicate leaves from preservation, cutting and wrapping with the aid of the latest technology. Though the company has been operating Sri Lanka for 30 years, the factory you will be visiting is only several years old.
