The cigar marketing season began yesterday at its decentralised contract sales floor at Mapeto farm in Burma Valley and prices were firmer as farmers were paid $6,50 per kilogramme for the cigar compared  to $6,00 last season.
In an interview with Star FM News Tobacco Industry and Marketing Board spokesperson Mr Isheunesu Moyo said the cigar has been under trial, with prospects of going fully commercial and Zimbabwe becomes the third country in Africa after Cameroon and Kenya to produce the high value brand of cigar.
