Arturo Fuente says it will not be increasing prices for more than 99 percent of its production. That of course means that some—the company says less than 1 percent—will be increasing.
“The Fuente family has experienced and overcome major difficulties and tragedies during our 109 years in the premium cigar industry, and our long-standing principles and values dictate that we must do our best to assist in times like these,” said Carlos “Carlito” Fuente, Jr., president of The Fuente Companies, in a press release. “We are committed to selling the highest-quality cigars at the fairest prices, and we work hard to keep our prices at or below market.”
The less than 1 percent that will increase are said to be certain sizes of the Chateau Fuente line or short filler cigars like Brevas Royale or Curly Heads. Those cigars will increase on 3 percent.
