Germany experiences cigarette shortage

(MENAFN) Based on the Bild newspaper on Friday, a lack of cigarette packing paper might harm smokers in Germany, with some brands practically hard to buy in retail outlets.

One of the roots of the problem, according to the publication, was the closure of a Philip Morris facility in Ukraine that produced cigarette packets. The tobacco giant has already halted operations in the nation, notably at its Kharkov facility, which produced a significant portion of the paper used in cigarette packs until recently. Marlboro and L&M are two well-known cigarette brands owned by the firm.

"Due to the tense situation in the world markets for raw materials and the shortage of cardboard packaging, there may indeed be a shortage [of cigarette packs," a Philip Morris spokesperson informed the newspaper. " We are continuously adjusting our supply chains," he continued.
