Organic Tobacco Unavailable
    #3547329 - 12/27/04 09:56 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Hi,

I am posting this mail about organic tobacco for silverwolf who currently has no access to the internet:

Dear Gerard,

Thank you for your nice e-mail. Please apologize the late reply, we have
tried to get one issue of the "Independent" first and we succeeded! We where
very happy and impressed so far, to read the article and your interview. A
little "thank you envelope" will arrive with royal mail soon.

The Natural American Spirit "Organic" is available in the USA and in Japan
only and it is certified organic tobacco. In October 2002, the USDA adopted
a set of standards called the National Organic Program (NOP). Now, to make
an organic claim, farm producers and manufacturers along with all
contractors must be certified and inspected annually by an inspector
registered with the NOP. Our tobacco meets the strict guidelines set up to
be certified organic.

Besides offering superb quality to consumers, organic tobacco has provided a
financial boost to many small farmers. Our American partners, the Santa Fe
Natural Tobacco Company Inc. began contracting directly with farmers in
Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee and in Ohio.
In order to attract quality growers, Natural American Spirit USA pays twice
the market price for certified organic flue-cured and Burley tobacco as
compared to conventional tobacco.

The tobacco that we use for all other NAS products is "pesticide residue
clean" which means that after harvesting and drying the tobacco leafs, the
results of a chemical analysis show that there is no residue of fertilizers
or pesticides in the tobacco used for our products. Maybe this is
interesting to you.

At present we do not have concrete plans for an introduction of the Natural
American Spirit "Organic" in Europe. Naturally this product fits perfectly
into our companies philosophy and we can assure you that someday we will be
able to offer the "Organic" in Europe, too.

We would be glad to keep you on file to send you an e-mail as soon as we
have further information in this matter.

Kind regards,

Chris Maak

You bet it's "interesting to me". I believe we have a right to be able to smoke the "cleanest" tobacco possible. Such a dangerous substance as tobacco/nicotine should only be prepared under the strictest conditions with great reverence for the "Spirit" of the plant.
If you are interested in putting pressure on "The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company" to make it's "Organic" product available here in Europe please email them at contact@americanspirit-europe.com and mention (if you like) that you have seen a copy of their letter to me.

best wishes all for the Festive Season

The natural american spirit tobacco IS available here in Europe.
I buy a package of rolling tobacco every week!

It is said to be without ADDITIVES, it does not mention anything about poison used in tobacco cultivation...

Hehe I dont see any Organic tobacco, I want that!!!

Sorry it is true, no organic Tobacco on European market. Due to teh fact that there is not enough organic tobacco produced.

What a world....

Well they supply enough for America and Japan ! We need to worry about what goes on to the plant before it's harvested as well as afterwards!
