Direct contract growing

Direct contract growing was established in 2004 to enhance and ensure continued and reliable production of the Zimbabwean tobacco crop.


This increase in national production is attributable to contract growing. CTP has a license to purchase Flue-Cured Virginia (FCV) directly from the farmer. CTP has been and remains a well-established and influential player in this field.

Contracted growers support

All contracted growers receive various levels of support ranging from finance, fuel, coal, chemicals and extensive agronomy assistance. Without this support, production would not generate the quality and styles that our customer base requires.


Agricultural Practices

Farmers grow under a signed contract with CTP. CTP adheres to and complies with the rules and regulations as set by the Tobacco Industry Marketing Board (TIMB). CTP is a founder and contributor to the Sustainable Afforestation Program, a Zimbabwe tobacco trade initiative endorsed by the Zimbabwe Authorities.
