We have received the sad news of the death of Mr. Virginio Morales Novo, recognised as one of the most prestigious specialists in the tobacco business.
With more than four decades dedicated to agriculture, and in particular tobacco growing, Morales was currently advising thousands of producers of the aromatic leaf in Vuelta Abajo, the zone where the world’s best tobacco is produced, with his experience as an agricultural specialist.
In 2017 he was awarded as Habano Award in the category of Production, in gratitude for his work and contribution to the Habanos industry and its commercialization.
The Agriculture System and mourn the loss of an extremely valuable and beloved colleague, who will remain forever in the memory of those who knew him and of a sector that Virginio knew how to honour until the last moment of his life, with his dedication and wisdom.
Habanos, S.A. sends our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
