Who We Are
The Régie Libanaise des Tabacs et Tombacs is a public organization controlled by the Lebanese Ministry of Finance. Regie aims to manage the plantation, manufacturing, trade and transport of tobacco, Tunbac and its derivatives across the North, South and the Bekaa districts of Lebanon. Regie's activities are informed by state-of-the-art scientific standards, electronic management and cutting-edge social projects that aim to support both the agricultural sector and farmers.
Regie plays an important economic, social and developmental role in Lebanon and is one of the most proactive, pioneering and successful organizations in the country. Regie's innovative approaches mean that it plays an important role in supporting the national Lebanese budget.
As with other products, The Exclusiveness Law limits the purchase, manufacturing and sale of Tunbac and tobacco, along with plantation, manufacturing, transport, export, sale and consumption. The Law also covers violations and smuggling. The Law also regulates the state's control over the technical, economic and financial management of tobacco and Tunbac, under Law Number 151 and under the control of the Ministry of Finance.
Regie oversees the permit and licensing of tobacco farmers and offers technical guidance and support. The organization also supervises plantation methods, oversees the planted areas and ensures overall quality and development through a variety of mechanisms. Once the crop has matured, Regie oversees the harvesting, drying and packaging process prior to delivery to the organization's plants, where the tobacco and tunbac is sorted, packed, prepared and stored before it is processed or exported.
Production and Fabrication
At its Hadath and Tripoli facilities, Regie fabricates domestic cigarettes and flavored tobacco. The plants are outfitted with modern machinery and technology, allowing for fast and efficient production. Regie produces the following cigarettes and tobaccos: Cedars, Cedars Plus, Cedars Silver, Maestro Violet, Maestro Regular, Tunbac 'Naqha' and Persian Seed (Ajami).
In accordance with Law 151, Regie is the exclusive agent for all imported tobacco products and the sole agency that has the authority to grant permits for the sale of tobacco. Regie also oversees anti-smuggling operations with Lebanon and on her borders.
