Massalin Particulares & Philip Morris Latin American Services
Massalin Particulares S.R.L is Philip Morris International's affiliate in Argentina. With more than 115 years of history in the country, we operate two cigarette manufacturing plants, one in Merlo (Buenos Aires) and another one in Goya (Corrientes). We have a tobacco leaf processing plant in Rosario de Lerma (Salta) and a national tobacco warehouse in Perico (Jujuy), besides tobacco storage centers in these two last locations. Additionally, we are present in Alem (Misiones) with technical agriculture assistance and have central offices in Vicente López, in Buenos Aires province. We are the leading tobacco company in Argentina. We employ approximately 2,600 people and buy tobacco from five provinces, to over 7,400 tobacco growers.
We support social programs in Argentina aimed at making a difference in the local communities where we operate. This includes efforts to prevent child labor in tobacco growing provinces and to enhance the quality of, and access to, education.
