V2 TOBACCO - WE LOVE SMOKELESS TOBACCO
A genuine interest in snus is what led the brothers Marc and Patrick Vogel to launch V2 Tobacco in 2006. Production began on a small scale, but increased as a result of demand until the brothers outgrew their factory.
Today, Scandinavia's most modern snus factory is ready and equipped for the future. Our business concept is simple: We manufacture portion and loose snus of high quality. Our snus is characterised by a well-proportioned base where full body and bite combined.
FROM RAW TOBACCO TO FINELY GROUND TOBACCO MEAL
The majority of our raw tobacco comes from the finest plantations in the Philippines, India, and the United States. Both the stalks and the leaves are used in the milling process. The color of the dried tobacco normally varies from lemon yellow to dark brown.
The tobacco leaves are crushed and ground into tobacco meal with different grades of coarseness depending on the type of snus.
The grinding takes place in a completely enclosed, automated facility.
ALL SNUS IS CAREFULLY BLENDED AND TESTED
The snus factory meets strict requirements with respect to hygiene and food safety, and all employees involved in production are internally food safety certified.
The tobacco meal is then blended with water, salt and flavourings. The snus is then pasteurised in order to neutralise any microorganisms.
Daily inspections are performed to ensure that the taste, moisture and nicotine content of each snus variety is optimal.
AN EXTRAORDINARY SMOKELESS TOBACCO FACTORY
Our 4,900 m² factory in Silkeborg has the capacity to deliver large, aggregate orders without any problems.
When all of the factory's production lines are in operation, we are able to manufacture 40 million tins a year.
Every tin of snus that leaves the factory is furnished with a batch number, so that the product can be tracked all the way from manufacture to the end customer.
TOP QUALITY THROUGHOUT
After pasteurisation, the snus is cooled down prior to packing. After packing the tins are weighed and labelled. A packing machine cuts and seals the fibre bags used to make portion snus. At full capacity, the machine can manufacture 28,000 bags an hour.
All handling, from tobacco sourcing to finished snus, is performed in keeping with strict routines focused on attaining the highest possible quality.
