We at Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company are the manufacturer and marketer of Natural American Spirit cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco products. Natural American Spirit products are made with 100 percent additive-free tobacco and include thirteen cigarette styles and four roll-your-own styles.
“The central concept on which the company has been built is that consumers of tobacco products have the right to know exactly what they are consuming.” — Robin Sommers, former president of SFNTC
We make our cigarettes with 100 percent additive-free tobacco, including styles with 100 percent U.S. grown tobacco, and with certified organic tobacco. Our blenders create the highest quality tobacco blends and only use two ingredients: whole leaf tobacco and water.
Way back in 1989 we pioneered growing programs for organic tobacco. We worked directly with independent farmers to grow tobacco according to organic standards. We encouraged these contracted farmers to meet the rigorous USDA National Organic Program certification process when it was established in 2000. Every year we expand our relationships with farmers to educate them about organic growing methods.
Natural American Spirit products are sold in the United States, Europe and Japan. Our Oxford, N.C. facility sources tobacco and manufactures the blends for all Natural American Spirit products worldwide.
Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company believes that smoking is an adult choice. That's why we market only to smokers 21 years of age or older. We don’t encourage non-smokers to start smoking, we don't encourage smokers to smoke more, and we don't discourage smokers from quitting.
As appropriate for the styles we sell, we label our products and advertising with one or more of the following: Cigarette smoking is harmful to your health. No additives in our tobacco does NOT mean a safer cigarette. Organic tobacco does not mean a safer cigarette. Just a few examples of our straightforward and transparent approach to marketing Natural American Spirit tobacco products.
