A. Resources
  1. The staff of ISSCORP has over 100 years of cumulative experience in buying and selling tobacco from leading tobacco-growing countries, including USA, China, Brazil, India, Zimbabwe, Italy and Canada.
  2. For almost 20 years, ISSCORP has been supplying a wide range of tobacco types, including flue-cured, burley, dark fire-cured, dark air-cured and sun-cured as well as byproducts, including stems, scraps and fines.
  3. ISSCORP has a long-term strategic alliance in many countries where technical assistance in leaf grading and processing is provided to insure that the grades are packed up to international standard and according to client’s specifications.
  4. In China, ISSCORP deals directly with provincial factories and cooperates with the respective export entities.

B. Origins & Types

  1. Flue-Cured Virginia: ISSCORP can offer flue-cured through affiliated packers in major tobacco regions of USA, China, Brazil, India, Italy and Zimbabwe.
  2. Burley: ISSCORP can offer burley from USA, Malawi, Brazil, Thailand, Italy, Greece, China and India.
  3. Dark Fire-Cured & Dark Air-Cured: ISSCORP can offer dark fire-cured from USA (Kentucky and Tennessee), Malawi, Italy and Canada.

C. Product Development

  1. In collaboration with Fawky Abdallah Company’s expert staff, ISSCORP can provide technical service in formulating blends for American blended cigarettes (ABC) and straight Virginia cigarettes (SVC) that are technically balanced, cost-effective and with maximum utilization of the local leaf supply of each client/country.
  2. The service also covers improvement of existing brands to bring them up to international standard by developing new blending & processing know-how.
  3. After extensive studies on leaf processing, what is called High Performance Burley Casing and Toasting Line was developed, which when used with the required know-how, allows for specific amino-sugar reactions to take place in order to acquire the desired Flavor Development that improves the smoking qualities.
  4. After years of R&D work with leading manufacturers of flavorings and leaf primary equipment manufacturers, ISSCORP developed unique casing & flavoring formulae and new leaf processing techniques for American blend cigarettes, straight Virginia cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco and specialty smoking products. This resulted in being able to produce top quality smoking products while maximizing the use of local tobaccos and manufacturing equipment but with a small investment in new casings, flavorings and leaf processing know-how. This approach to product development proved to clients in several countries that they could make a quality product without having to pay for high priced leaf tobacco or expensive leaf processing equipment.
  5. ISSCORP was actively involved in the development of a technique for the flavor-enrichment of premium hand-made cigars to protect the manufacturers against unexpected shortages of superior quality wrapper, binder and filler or simply to enable them to use lower priced cigar wrapper, binder or filler.
  6. ISSCORP developed a new line of little cigars that covers the regular version made of 100% natural leaf and flavored versions that consist of Swiss Chocolate, Vanilla Hazelnut, Sweet Cinnamon, Cool Mint, Roasted Coffee, Mellow Pipe, Rum Bacardi, Amaretto, Scotch Whiskey and Vintage Cognac.
  7. As the anti-smoking campaigns continue, the US market for smokeless tobacco products (Chewing) has been growing. ISSCORP developed a premium line of chewing tobacco product that is packed in a new plastic container instead of the conventional pouch and is made in a traditional Wintergreen flavor, enriched with a background spearmint note, along with new flavors, including Apple, Cherry, Rum and Bourbon.
  8. After years of R&D work with leading manufacturers of flavorings and leaf primary equipment manufacturers, some unique casing and flavoring formulae and new leaf processing techniques were developed for smoking products, including American blend cigarettes, straight Virginia cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco and specialty smoking products. This resulted in being able to produce top quality smoking products while maximizing the use of local tobaccos and manufacturing equipment but with a small investment in new casings, flavorings and leaf processing know-how. A new approach to product development proved to clients in the US and several countries that they can make a quality product without having to pay for high priced leaf tobacco or expensive leaf processing equipment.
