“Keeping you and your customer’s best interests in mind, we strive to absorb increasing costs whenever possible,” said Paul Waller, head of sales for Altadis U.S.A.’s premium cigar division, in a letter to retailers “The revised pricing on certain items in the attached price list offsets a portion of the rising manufacturing costs for our portfolio, but also normalizes pricing across certain brands.”

The company’s last price increase was believed to be in October 2019.
