George Karelias & Son
Who says that family companies should be only prevalent in the service sector where the personal touch is needed? The cigarette sector also has a family company to boast of - George Karelia. This company is the largest cigarette manufacturer in Greece and one of the most well-known cigarette factories in the world.
George Karelias and Sons is a high price end brand that has been produced in Kallarnata, Greece since 1888. Surprisingly enough, the brand still belongs to the family of founders: it has not been assimiliated by a global corporation, as it usually happens with national cigarette brands.
The tobacco blend used for George Karelias and Sons does not contain any chemical additives. George Karelias and Sons cigarettes come with filters (Superior Virginia and Superior Lights, 79mm) and without filters (Virginia Plain Ovals, 68mm). The brand also produces 84 mm cigarettes in soft packs.
