Zimbabwe tobacco sales down 44%

Tobacco sales in Zimbabwe in 2019 are down 44% on last year’s sales. After 53 days of trading, sales were at $292.8m compared with $523.5m at the same time in 2018. The price of tobacco and the quantities delivered were also down with one and a half months of trading left. The reduction has been attributed to reduced global demand for tobacco and changing use of technologies such as e-cigarettes.
