When Swedish Match AB launched General Tailored White Portion Snus in April of 2013, the main talking point was something new added to the snus: NATUFIBE®
It all started with one question. The answer to which led me deeper and deeper into a darkened, nuanced world in which translating Swedish to American and learning more about snus manufacturing kept leading to more questions. Here are the high points of what I’ve learned. The main reason I embarked on this quest was to correct the record. Natufibe has been reported as part of the portion material. I wasn’t sure that was correct and it kept gnawing at me until I got off my butt, or more accurately got on my butt, in front of my computer, and started digging .....
If all goes according to plan, Gotlandssnus AB will begin producing its excellent snus's at their new state-of-the-art factory on March 10th. The new factory; cleverly named Gotlandssnus AB "The Factory", is twice the size of their former shared factory and was built to ISO and HACCP standards using both the Lean and Six Sigma Project Management Methodologies.(impressed? you should be!)
Most importantly, "The Factory" is 100% owned and operated by Gotlandssnus AB. Its located in the old sugar factory on Romakloster on Gotland wall to wall with Nordic Snus Manufacturing AB but as Henrik Jakobsson, the Managing Director stressed again,"The Factory" is about twice the size.
If the below article had appeared in a California newspaper, it wouldn't have surprised me or even really held my interest. Google "crazy, insane, fascist, wacky laws and ordinances" and a picture of California comes up.
But this article was in the Business Section of the Dallas Morning News. Not to say that the City of Dallas is not anti-smoking; far from it. But the tone of the article, especially the quotes, is what really took me aback.
PART 2: Philip Morris USA and the Great American Snus Experiment:
NOW it's time to take a hard look at the tobacco industry and ESPECIALLY Philip Morris USA, who embarrassed America to snus lovers world-wide with their current so-called snus product, Marlboro snus and their original, even worse debacle with Taboka ....I can't even stomach putting the word "snus" after it.
Now let's talk about Snus:
What the heck IS Snus, WHERE do you get it, WHY would you want it, and most importantly (to me), why am I so excited about it?

From the USA to the EU and beyond, strategies and legislation are in play which will DRAMATICALLY change YOUR RIGHT to use discreet, extremely "reduced harm", containing no nicotine up to high nicotine Swedish Snus. (all regulated for over 30 years as a Food Product under Swedish Law). The Anti-All-Tobacco Zealots are not stopping with cigarettes. They're going after ALL Tobacco products (except cigars). They don't care if you like the taste of tobacco. They don't care that you're nicotine addicted (nicotine is more addictive than heroin, you know). They don't care that Big American Tobacco not only manipulates nicotine levels to keep you addicted to cigarettes and "American Snus", but.....sugar!They don't care that DOCTORS are using Swedish Snus as a Smoking Cessation tool! No, they hate everyone who uses ANY tobacco product (except cigars) even when, in the case of Swedish/TRUE Swedish Style Snus, it has no effect on them whatsoever and, again, is 98% safer than cigarettes for current smokers!You'd know that if you were a Member of SnusCENTRAL.org. You'd know in detail the Why's, the How's, and the Motivations of all parties involved. You wouldn't wake up one morning and suddenly discover not only cigarettes, but SWEDISH SNUS was Banned in the USA like other uninformed, or misinformed (often deliberately) tobacco users.If you're wondering why I keep saying (except cigars), there's a very good reason and SnusCENTRAL Members know what it is. So join the Snus Family at SnusCENTRAL.org. If you really love snus or just want to learn more about it, this is the place to be.For and From your Friends at SnusCENTRAL.org,
