On the 3rd of April 2017, a 40 ft container full of Fuente Cigars was lost/stolen somewhere between the port and the company’s warehouse in Tampa.
As per Carlos P. Fuente Jr (known as Carlitto) statement on April 07, 2017, the loss will cause a shortage for Fuentes Cigars in the market. The company is working hard to face this challenge; however, they will not risk their quality by rushing the production and aging which are special traits of Fuente Cigars.
“We have been expanding our factory in the Dominican Republic for the last two years, and we hope to increase production in the future. Our entire team is ready to put in extra effort to recover from this loss, and provide you with the highest quality cigars.”
