White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes, a leading manufacturer of e-cigarettes and accessories based in Tarpon Springs, Florida, USA, has been awarded Tobacco Reporter‘s prestigious Golden Leaf Award in the Most committed to quality category.
The award was presented at the 2014 annual Global Tobacco Networking Forum (GTNF) conference, held from Oct. 1-4 at the historic Greenbrier resort in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia.
Rob Burton, director of corporate and regulatory affairs at White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes, was a panelist and speaker at the event.
“I was extremely proud to collect the award on behalf of White Cloud,” Burton said. “Particularly as it was for the company ‘Most committed to quality,’ as this recognizes the efforts and devotion of every single person within our organization.”
Each year, the GTNF awards five honors of separate distinction. The other categories include, “Most impressive public service initiative,” “Most promising new product introduction,” and “Most exciting newcomer to the industry.” Last year, White Cloud was honored as the “Most exciting newcomer to the industry” before taking home the “BMJ Most committed to quality” honor this year.
The annual event aims to publicly recognize the accomplishments and contributions of the tobacco industry’s most vital players.
In association with sponsors from around the world, Tobacco Reporter has presented the Golden Leaf Awards for excellence within the tobacco and nicotine industry every year since the first event in 2006. In 2013, White Cloud was the first electronic cigarette company ever to be recognized at the event.
