I. & L. Jacobsen’s ‘Tobaks-Fabrique’ in Christiania is granted a Royal Warrant

The beginning

I & L. Jacobsen’s Tobaks-Fabrique in Christiania is granted a Royal Warrant to manufacture “all kinds of smoking tobacco and tobacco snuff” and to sell both its own products and imported tobacco products. This is now recognized as the date for the formal establishment of the business undertaking which today lives on as Ferd. However, the factory itself was opened more than 30 years earlier by Jens Jacobsen, a city councillor, ship owner and merchant (1703-1772).
