STORAGE AND SWEATING
Lancaster Leaf has over 750,000 square feet of receiving, sweating and storing capacity. Our specially designed forced
fermentation rooms handle millions of pounds of Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Wisconsin tobaccos every year. These
operations can ferment and pack both straight strips and wrapper at competitive rates. Lancaster can sweat various domestic
dark air-cured crops in wooden cases and then repack these crops in cardboard cases.
We also operate three receiving stations in Lancaster County to handle the various local crops, which can be fermented and processed at our factory or shipped to another location for our customers. Our local buying and grading staff works side by side with our customers to make sure that they are getting the best possible quality for the best possible price.
Our receiving station in Connecticut handles the various Connecticut crops. Lancaster Leaf also offers long term storage of our customer’s purchases in Lancaster County and also at our satellite operation in Virginia.
SOURCING & LOGISTICS
Lancaster Leaf offers sourcing of all types of tobaccos both through local operations owned and operated by Universal Corporation including sister operations in the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Paraguay, Brazil, Nicaragua, and the Philippines and also through partner operations all over the world.
