Gudang Garam Cigarettes
Gudang Garam (lit. \” salt warehouse\”) was founded on 26 June 1958, and it is salutary to reflect that it is one of the most successful tobacco companies in Indonesia today. It is Indonesia’s second-largest tobacco manufacturer, with a market share of about 20%.
The company is a leading manufacturer of kretek cigarettes (these clove-type cigarettes are a trademark of Indonesia). It produces a wide range of kretek cigarettes, including low-tar, low-nicotine variants and traditional hand-rolled kretek, distributed domestically and worldwide.
