GTL

GTL is the one of the largest manufacturers of cigarettes in India. The company is a pioneer in creating the World’s first low tobacco cigarettes ”Loe Tabac”. The first variant of Loe Tabac was by substituting 25% of harmful tobacco by using other plant based smokable ingredients. The second variant of Loe Tabac was by substituting 50% of harmful tobacco by using other plant based smokable ingredients. Tobacco Specific Nitrosamines (TSNA) and Carbon Monoxide(CO) are the worst carcinogens produced while burning a cigarette. While nicotine is harmful, it is basically responsible for a smokers addiction; it has no carcinogenic properties. It has been authenticated by reputed labs in the USA, UK and India that Low tobacco cigarettes and Cigars have significantly lower levels of harmful substances as compared to full tobacco. The 25% has been launched in the Indian Market and once that is firmly entrenched and established the 50 % will be introduced. However it was found that in international markets 50 % variant of Loe Tabac cigarettes and cigars has been found to be more in demand and is being exported.

GTL makes some of the country's most successful cigarette brands in the premium and regular categories. It has emerged as the single largest player in the mini cigarettes segment in the country with a dominant market share. The company is vertically integrated from tobacco procurement, blending and processing to cigarette manufacturing and in-house printing and packaging.

The Group's cigarette brands have won international awards for quality and packaging design. This is facilitated by the excellent standards established at its two primary production centres and numerous manufacturing arrangements across the country. Another contributing factor lies in the ongoing research and development activity at three R & D Centres located in Bombay, Baroda and Guntur. These Centres provide free technical assistance to growers with a view to enhancing the quality, yield and storage facilities of tobacco.
