Default AF Golden Packing different from UAE to USA?

Hello,


Does Sierra pack/repack AF Golden sold in the US? My AF Golden which I bought from there looks different. Checking both Alfakheronline.com (AF Official website in the US) and Alfakher.com (AF's official website) the packing seems different. Also US-Version of Golden AF does not seem to have the authenticity seal. US Version comes in a green box while UAE version is in a dark red box.

AlFakher.com Grape Gold



AlfakherOnline.com Grape Gold (which is what I got)




Soon stores in Egypt will start carrying AF Golden which will definitely be a direct import from the UAE not through the USA as I did ..... My question is, has anyone tried US Golden AF and UAE Golden AF both? Is there a difference? Does Sierra get the tobacco in bulk and pack it in tubs, or they get it in tubs and just make the cardboard box packing for the tub?

The stuff I got from the US has both English and Arabic writing on it, less Arabic writing than the UAE stuff but still there are Arabic writing. Do you care to take closeups of the pack and upload them?

Hmm interesting. Never saw this difference. I assume it's just a packaging change. Companies play to different markets based on local tastes. But then again that could lend it's self to a recipe change. I doubt it though.

Ive seen some cases where it says on the package "packed for export" .. Maybe the US verson is packed for export and looks different.. Just a thought.
but I see now that for example ************* have the "original" red box with black grape on it. At least the picture on their website.. The same as alfakher.com

The US ones in the green boxes I got are from ************* ... and they are authentic no doubt because they are the same as AlFakherOnline.com which is AlFakher's online shop in the US

i am waiting eagerly for AF to send the US the new packaging on the golden line, however I think they are waiting to release a whole new golden line in the short future. that's right, you heard it here first, AF is making a new golden line, new flavs and new packaging, but that's all i know for now

Does Sierra pack/repack AF Golden sold in the US? No AF trading Co. has different packaging for every market it sells in. When I get AF soft black in comes the old style boxes they stopped selling in the states about 2 years ago.
