Casa Fernandez Cigars/Aganorsa Tobacco
Eduardo Antonio Fernández Pujals, the owner of Aganorsa S.A., came to Nicaragua in 1997 with a desire to get into agriculture. Over the last two decades, Aganorsa has been transformed from an unknown organization into a major force in the world of Nicaraguan tobacco. The company has built a clientele by growing tobacco in the old-fashioned Cuban style, using Cuban seeds and the oversight of well-seasoned agronomists from Cuba. Giant and boutique companies alike get tobacco from Aganorsa, but the operation also produces its own cigars under the Casa Fernandez brand.
