GROW WITH US exciting international opportunities await


Geraldo Dannemann arrived in the small riverside town of São Félix, Bahia in 1872. His goal was simple, to create the finest hand crafted cigars from the region’s rich & fragrant tobaccos. He began working with the local craftspeople and the factory he founded over a century ago is still in operation today.

From these modest beginnings DANNEMANN has grown into an internationally renowned tobacco group, with unique tobacco plantations in the Americas & Asia, and traditional manufacturing plants worldwide. Our cigars & cigarillos are now available in over 60 countries. 

We  have a diverse portfolio of brands including DANNEMANN, MOODS and Al Capone. 

DANNEMANN remains privately held today and proudly retains the pioneering vision of its original founder.


DANNEMANN offers continuous 9 months' Traineeships at its location in São Félix (Bahia, Brazil), starting with a one-week orientation / familiarisation period respectively at our location in Lübbecke (Germany) and in Brissago (Switzerland).
