Handzame is the heart of our operation. Here all the selected tobaccos, carefully rolled on bobbins, arrive straight from our Sri Lanka factory. Deep frozen at -20°C and travelling by container for four weeks, they are kept frozen until needed for production. Every morning, we defrost the fresh batch for the day. Every year, we process 13,000 bobbins, which works out to 900 tons of tobacco. Handzame is also where our Neos and Amigos ranges are manufactured. The Amigos get packed in house, whereas the Neos are sent to Zwevegem for packing.
"The black & white tiles used to be the mayor's dancefloor.
We still love to do a little dance now and then"
