It has a tobacco leaf processing plant in Rosario de Lerma (Salta), a national tobacco warehouse in Perico (Jujuy), and tobacco storage centers at both these locations.

Key facts

Main brands

Philip Morris, Marlboro

Philip Morris International bought a controlling interest in Massalin & Celasco, as the company was known, in 1965. In 1980, Massalin & Celasco merged with two other cigarette manufacturers to form Massalin Particulares. Today, we are the leading tobacco company in Argentina, and employ approximately 2,500 people in seven locations across the country.

We operate three manufacturing facilities, and we buy tobacco from over 7,400 tobacco growers in five provinces. We support many social programs in Argentina aimed at making a difference in the local communities where we operate. This includes efforts to prevent child labor in tobacco growing and to enhance the quality of, and access to, education.
