Our History - U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company

Our History
Our History
The evolution of U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company mirrors closely the explosive growth of the United States over the past two centuries. Copenhagen – the original offering of USSTC – remains today the company's foundation. One of the oldest branded products still in use in America, it has stood over the years as a lasting symbol of quality that is reflected in all the products we now manufacture.
