Tobacco snus is a Swedish product and cannot be sold in the EU territory.
It originates from air-dried tobacco in powder, including some flavour-enhancing ingredients and is consumed by placing it inside one’s lip. It is an alternative to cigarettes smoking.
Like in many other examples connected to food processing, sieving can help improve the quality of the product by reducing the presence of tobacco lumps within the mixture and obtain a final homogeneous product.
It is for this objective that Virto-Cuccolini in the recent past has been invited to supply a possible solution for a tobacco producer.
In the below video, we used a VPM sieve from our C-Line series of vibrating sieves to obtain this result, by a simple safety sieving.
