We are taking on the challenge to adapt to this new way of life and to new challenges it has presented, for our industry and the world as a whole, current demand of all goods have (been) rising in price and us at the Cigar industry have not been exempt, scarcity of tobacco is growing and so are prices of the most important element of our products, adding skyrocketing shipment prices and box prices we have to adapt and make some changes of our own.
