OUR PRODUCTS & INGREDIENTS

The performance of ASSPREN’s making and packing lines around the world is a critical factor in responding to a changing market.

As pack and brand design variations increase and become more tailored to the consumer, the complexity of manufacturing increases. In the past, even small changes to packaging meant shutting down production lines for hours at a time. Today, our investment in the latest technology means that we are able to rapidly adjust our production to meet changing consumer demands. 

We endeavour to strike a reasonable balance between providing detailed information about the ingredients in our products while protecting our proprietary recipes from disclosure to competitors. The primary ingredient is of course our natural tobacco, the flavorings and other ingredients are listed according to their percentages. The lists identifying the ingredients are available on Middle Eastern webpages, and are for those whose levels are of 0.1% or more of the weight of the cigarette, the lists are organized by brand name.

PROTECTING OUR CIGARETTE BRANDS

The cigarettes we manufacture should be sold in compliance with all laws and regulations. Illicit trade undermines the investment we make in our brands and in the legitimate trade channels through which our products are sold. 

It also undermines public health initiatives and creates unfair competition for legitimate businesses that are unable to compete with illicit cigarette distributors and sellers. 

The vast majority of Asspren cigarettes in the market are genuine cigarettes that we manufacture and are sold legally with all appropriate taxes and duties paid. However, we not want consumers to inadvertently purchase illicit cigarettes. Illicit here can take a variety of forms, including counterfeit cigarettes, genuine but smuggled cigarettes, or illegally imported (or grey market) cigarettes.
