Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/01/2014 -- Chimo, the only type of other chewing tobacco available in the country, has a long tradition in Venezuela, being one of the first chewable tobaccos known in the world. It has its origin in the region of Los Andes, being prepared by indigenous groups. Chimo is a tobacco paste made from tobacco leaves which are boiled, adding products such as baking soda and sugar until the mixture develops a consistency similar to that of caramel. This product is kept in the mouth whilst the consumer absorbs the flavour and then spits out the excess saliva which is generated. It began to be adopted as a stimulant by people who want to stay alert for a long time (taxi and truck drivers), and then it expanded towards youth groups, becoming a fad amongst students.
Smokeless tobacco is led by Fabrica de Chimo El Tigrito CA, which held 65% volume share in 2013. The company manufactures El Tigrito, a brand with a long tradition in the country. El Tigrito is available in two different presentations: 18g and 25g, contained in a yellow metal tin which is easily recognised by consumers. Unlike small industry players, Fabrica de Chimo El Tigrito CA does not purely operate at regional levels; otherwise, El Tigrito can be found in all major cities of Venezuela.
