Swedish Snus vs American "snus": Just how different are they? 8 April 2010.
this video talks a lot about the history of Swedish Snus, it's very interesting and informative!
production standards and quality, as well as this one that talks about production standards and has more info on tobacco, as well.
Swedish Match's factories in Sweden. We were given all access to see how snus was made and told about the production methods and standards they use. When it comes to American "SNUS", they couldn't be more secretive. Anytime I've tried to speak with an American "snus"making company, they wouldn't disclose anything about how their snus is cured or made, or even what types of tobacco they use. With Swedish Snus manufacturers, you can email or call any of them and they're more than happy to answer your questions (within reason, of course, there are still trade secrets). Most of them even publish information on their websites about the production standards they use. Swedish Match has even made videos you can check out about their production processes, this one covers production from the seed to the can, and this one shows production of snus in their factory.
