Tobacco Commission blames US ban for high rejection

Tobacco market regulator, Tobacco Commission (TC), has partly attributed a recent rise in tobacco rejection rate on the market to a tobacco export ban to the United States (US) market imposed last year.

According to TC Chief Executive Officer, Kaisi Sadala, some buyers are yet to ship tobacco which was bought during the previously season.

In November 2019, The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued an order that all tobacco deemed to have been produced using child and forced labour are denied entry into the country.
