JTI is launching two of its most iconic brands into the ultra-value segment to provide retailers with high quality value for existing adult smokers. Featuring the lowest recommended retail prices from JTI, Benson & Hedges Blue, the UK’s no.1 cigarette brand[i], will launch a new rolling tobacco offering, Benson & Hedges Blue Rolling, whilst Mayfair will introduce a new RMC range – Mayfair Silver.
Mark McGuiness, Marketing Director at JTI UK, says: “We know that for many existing adult smokers, price is a key factor when deciding what brand to purchase. By offering iconic brands like Mayfair and Benson & Hedges at new ultra-low prices, retailers can capitalise on both Mayfair Silver and Benson & Hedges Blue Rolling’s brand heritage, with products that also offer a competitive price point. We have a proven track record of innovation from other established heritage brands, so we’re confident these line extensions will be well received by customers. Retailers should price at the RRP* to maximise the sales opportunity and drive incremental sales in the category.”
Available across all channels later this month, Benson & Hedges Blue Rolling includes quality Virginia tobacco blend and 100 papers within the 30g and 50g pouches, with an RRP of just £13.65*/£22.35* per 30g/50g and will be available across England and Wales only. Mayfair Silver will be available in both King Size and Superkings at a RRP of £10.15* per 20 pack, and will be available across England, Wales and NI.
