JTI has launched a new 3-in-1 rolling tobacco variant of its Holborn Yellow brand with tobacco, papers and filters all in the same pouch.
The pouch contains 30g of tobacco, 100 papers, and 77 filter tips and has an rrp of £11.70 – the same as the 2-in-1 version, making it, “great value for money,” JTI said.
Holborn Yellow 3-in-1 will allow retailers to make more of the growing value priced rolling tobacco market, which currently holds a 45.4% share of the UK’s RYO category, according to JTI.
JTI UK sales vice president Ross Hennessy said: “We’re excited to be launching our first 3-in-1 rolling tobacco pouches to existing adult smokers in the UK.
“At a time when value-for-money products are so popular, our new variants allow smokers to enjoy the same great quality tobacco at the same affordable price, but now all in one place.
“With over 6.5 million kilograms of rolling tobacco sold in the UK each year, it is imperative retailers stock products that will allow them to capitalise on this growing category, like Holborn Yellow 3-in-1.”
JTI is also launching a 3-in-1 Rolling Tobacco variant for its heritage brand Kensitas Club, which is particularly popular in Scotland.
Value RYO is growing at 17.5% year-on-year in Scotland according to JTI.
