The Italian government has taken action to recognize the producers of manufactured and shag tobaccos, that are 100% made in Italy, through the Institute for the Protection of the Italian Producers (ITPI), that has come up with a “100% Made in Italy Certificate”, on the basis of which the producers distinguish their creations from those of dubious Italian provenance, giving certainty to the final consumer about the origin and quality.
The certification is a fundamental tool of transparency in the tobacco market, “because today there are those who pass of as Italian but lack the requirements for obtaining the certificate”.
The Manifattura Italiana Tabacco, with its CHIARAVALLE brand, is today the only Italian company that produces cigarettes and shag tobacco that has been awarded with “100% Made in Italy Certified”. The “100% Made in Italy” certified products are passed through a series of very accurate examinations carried out by the ITPI on the basis of the following requirements:
- fully produced in Italy
- made with Italian raw and semi finished materials;
- built with natural materials of quality and first choice;
- made with outlines and unique designs of the company;
- constructed by adopting the typical traditional Italian handicraft.
This important certification is a further step towards the defence of “Made in Italy” and of the consumer, supported by our historical company.
Since 1795 we defend the tobacco culture of quality.
