Introduction to Tobacco Packaging

Tobacco is essentially prepared from leaves of tobacco plant. Tobacco belongs to the family Solanaceae, of the genus Nicotiana. Packaging plays an important part, as it offers details about the content of the product, the ingredients and holds the product in proper shape. In several countries worldwide, tobacco packaging includes the brand name of the suppliers in a mandated font, scale, and place. Even, colors, pictures, company names or patents are not permitted to be used in these nations. In addition, tobacco packers also have to incorporate mandatory health alerts and harmful constituents on the packaging.
