LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- American Heritage International Inc. ("American Heritage") (OTCQB: AHII), today announced its CEO, Anthony Sarvucci, recently concluded a successful tour of Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay where he set the groundwork for top national distribution partners for American Heritage's brand of disposable premium electronic cigarettes in those countries. He also had meaningful discussions with high-ranking government officials regarding the e-cigarette industry in general.
Anthony Sarvucci, CEO of American Heritage, said, "Business is done differently in South America. Footholds require relationships and relationships require face time with the right people. By setting the stage early, American Heritage has placed itself in a position to move a high volume of units when the e-cig craze that is hitting the United States migrates to South America. Our primary efforts remain focused on the US market but laying the groundwork for expansion into countries that have a much larger percentage of smokers is part of our long-term growth strategy.
American Heritage believes in the benefits of electronic cigarettes in terms of harm reduction as it relates to both the smoker and the people around them. We are pleased that countries such as Italy have recently allowed electronic smoking in all public places and we look forward to the day when the majority of nations follow suit."
Despite government action, smoking rates in South America remain high with the population of Brazil consuming over 100 billion cigarettes per year, Argentina over 40 billion cigarettes per year and Uruguay over 2.5 billion cigarettes per year. American Heritage has presented its premium electronic cigarettes as part of the solution and a valuable tool to cut tobacco use across all of South America.
