Top best answers to the question «When did filtered cigarettes come on the market»
When was the first filtered cigarette invented?
- In 1925, Hungarian inventor Boris Aivaz patented the process of making a cigarette filter from crepe paper. From 1935, a British company began to develop a machine that made cigarettes incorporating the tipped filter.
The first major filtered cigarette, called Parliament (Brown and Williamson), was introduced in the USA in 1931. Viceroy cigarettes (also Brown and Williamson), introduced in 1936, were the first filter cigarette sold at a popular price.
