A family tradition

Twist Tobacco is a RYO (Roll Your Own) and MYO (Make Your Own) tobacco producer founded in 2004 by Johan and Regine Vandermarliere.

Thanks to Johan and Regine's years of experience, the company started strong.

After the first four years at a 1,000 sq m production site in Melle, the company moved into a brand new 8,000 sq m factory in Wetteren.

This state-of-the-art facility allows the company to keep pace with the quick growth of its markets. Today, the company is still owned by Johan and Regine Vandermarliere and will remain family owned.


International expansion

Thanks to judicious investment and state-of-the-art production facilities, Twist exports to over 80 countries worldwide.

Due to its expertise, Twist is able to respond to all the technical and regulatory constraints of the global market, both for its own brands and for Privates Labels.
