House of Sampoerna

I made a stop last week in Surabaya, Indonesia’s second largest city. The city is also home to Sampoerna, the well known Indonesian tobacco and cloves company. The company was founded in 1913 and was the first publicly listed kretek cigarette company on the Jakarta Stock Exchange. The visit included a stop at the House of Sampoerna that comprises a museum, restaurant, auditorium and a still functioning production plant. Indonesia is the world’s 5th largest cigarette market.
