The quality of cut tobacco will be deteriorated due to weather conditions such as temperature and relative humidity, when shipping and long term storaging. The change of equilibrium moisture contents in cut tobacco were under influence of relative humidity and temperature but not humectants. Therefore internal packing materials are necessary for cut tobacco to maintain initial quality, including taste, flavour and musty smell during shipping or storaging. When packing cut tobacco for shipping or long term storaging, desiralbe packing density was 200/$m^2$, For the long term storage under R.H 90% and 3$0^{\circ}C$, polyethylene film thickness suitable for packing material are above 100$\mu$, which resulted in 42days of shelf life.
