Tobacco grows quality people.

Most of the Hail & Cotton leadership grew up around tobacco. So it’s just natural that our employees around the world have a deep respect for the product, and for the people they work with every day. We are proud of the vast experience we bring to the industry, and the valued long-standing relationships with our customers and growers.

Our tobacco speaks many languages.
