CETARSA is engaged in the purchase, fermenting, processing, threshing, preparation and commercialization, both in Spain and abroad, of raw tobacco.
It is the only raw-tobacco processing company in Spain. Its two factories and its four tobacco purchase and storage facilities are located in the Cáceres province.
The company buys most of the Spanish tobacco harvest, and it provides technical aid to farmers in order to improve the quality of the product, reduce costs and promote farming which is environmentally friendly.
Once the tobacco has been processed, CETARSA sells its products to the world biggest cigars and cigarettes manufacturers, who afterwards export them to around 70 countries all over the world.
