Here at NZSNUS, we want to make very clear what our intentions are.
We want the people of New Zealand to have options when it comes to quitting smoking!
We have decided to start selling Swedish Snus because its been proven overseas to dramatically help people quit smoking.
We are a socially responsible organisation hence, adopting an R18 restriction, no product advertisements, plain packaging as per the legislation and excise tax is paid on all our products.
We intend on being fully transparent and accountable whilst operating in this grey space we find ourselves in regarding the Smoke Free Environments Act (SFEA). Due to the purpose of this Act, we feel that Snus fits the bill and is an acceptable product for New Zealanders to achieve our National goal of Smokefree 2025.
If we look at Jenesa Jeram's report 'Smoke and Vapour', we see that even with the continued tax hikes the Government are enforcing, we will be sitting around 12% smoking prevalence by 2025. This is massively off the national target of 5% by 2025!
The prices shown here are inclusive of Tobacco excise tax. Once a regulatory body has been set up by the Ministry of Health, the current tax will be negotiated.
