The German-Paraguayan investment group Agri Terra has acquired Clayton Tobacco, a company that produces cigarettes in Paraguay for more than fifty years.
ASUNCION, PARAGUAY, August 05, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Agri Terra CEO Carsten Pfau confirmed the move in a recent statement. According to Pfau, Agri Terra has bought 100% of the well-known brand, however, it will bring its stake down to some 35%, as more investors are set to join the deal.
Agri Terra has so far focussed on investments in food, beverages and real estate. After most recently purchasing mineral water producer Indusur and orange juice producer Frutana, the tobacco investment may come as a surprise to most observers.
However, Agri Terra is amplifying its portfolio, a strategy strongly promoted by the group’s founder and CEO, German businessman Carsten Pfau, who invests in Paraguayan real estate and agriculture since 1993.
