Inside a tobacco manufacturing facility

How HEETS
are made.

Tobacco in every HEETS stick is prepared using a processing method called ‘cast leaf process’ to optimize the tobacco for heating. The tobacco leaves are ground into powder and reconstituted into tobacco sheets. These sheets are crimped and made into a tobacco plug which, combined with all the other parts, creates a HEETS stick

From farmer to consumer.

The journey to offering you this experience has a lot of tiny steps. It begins with farmers who care deeply for their crop, from America to Mozambique, Italy to Indonesia - they know their soil, the weather, the seasons - they are up at dawn and with their crop all day long.
