As a leading independent leaf tobacco merchant, Alliance One International provides worldwide service to cigarette manufacturers. Multinational manufacturers of consumer tobacco products rely on independent merchants such as Alliance One to supply the majority of their leaf. We purchase tobacco in more than 35 countries and serve manufacturers of cigarettes and other consumer tobacco products in more than 90 countries.
Alliance One proudly claims broad geographic processing capabilities, a diversified product offering and an established customer base, which includes all of the major consumer tobacco product manufacturers. We select, purchase, process, pack, store, ship and provide agronomy expertise and financing for growing leaf tobacco. Alliance One deals primarily in flue-cured, burley and oriental tobaccos that are used in international brand cigarettes, including American blend cigarettes.
Our customers are the multinational manufacturers of cigarettes and other consumer tobacco products. We typically purchase most of our leaf tobacco according to customer orders, supply contracts, or customer indications of anticipated need. The tobacco is then shipped to our customers' factories, which are located in approximately 90 countries around the world. We do not manufacture cigarettes or other consumer tobacco products.
Alliance One's global headquarters is located in Morrisville, North Carolina.
