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.

Today, the Swedish snus is in principle only for Swedes and Norwegians. Health hazards surrounding snuff are under constant debate, but researchers have long agreed that the risks of snus is substantially less than for smoking.
