Citing a number of increased costs, Maya Selva Cigars has announced that it will be implementing a price increase as of Jan. 1, 2021.
The company will be raising the cost of its cigars by 3 to 9 percent over its current prices, and while a representative of the company declined to get into specifics, the increase will affect the company’s three lines, Flor de Selva, Cumpay and Villa Zamorano.
As for the reasons that necessitated the increase, the company pointed to an increase in tobacco prices, which it said have been impacted by increased demand in cigar consumption. Additionally, transportation and shipping expenses have also gone up, partially due to the pandemic and two major hurricanes which hit the region.
