Tobacco Business Awards 2021 Winners Revealed

    Tobacco Business Awards 2021

    For a fourth year, Tobacco Business magazine is proud to announce the winners of this year’s Tobacco Business Awards. These awards were designed to recognize exceptional businesses, brands and entrepreneurs within the premium tobacco industry. What makes these awards unique is that they are entirely chosen and selected by the tobacco industry–the nominees and the finalists are all chosen and voted on by retailers, manufacturers and consumers of cigars, pipe tobacco and other product categories related to tobacco. This year, over 2,211 nomination ballots were cast and 8,511 individuals voted in the final round.

    “Oftentimes when you hear about tobacco and tobacco businesses in the mainstream media, it’s something negative. Tobacco Business has always been about celebrating the entrepreneurship seen within the tobacco industry and celebrating the companies and individuals that, against the odds, have built businesses and brands that have left a lasting impact on many,” says Antoine Reid, senior editor of Tobacco Business magazine. “This year’s Tobacco Business Awards, in my opinion, reflect the a year that challenged us all. Many of the winners this year faced monumental obstacles but rather than back down, they took on COVID and the many negative consequences of it and came out on top. The team here at Tobacco Business would like to congratulate all of the winners and celebrates each of them and their many accomplishments and achievements.”
