Alfredo Chambule, an official of the company, said that the introduction of the new processing line would require an increase in the amount of tobacco grown and would create new jobs within the factory.
He said that MLT, which is a subsidiary of Universal Tobacco, was ready to install the new line upon receiving approval from the relevant authorities.
