Republic Technologies (UK) Ltd plays a major role in the UK’s fast-growing tobacco accessories market.
Committed to providing choice and quality at an affordable price, RTUK’s portfolio includes iconic, household brands such as Swan, which has a market-leading value share of the filters market, complemented by fast-growing brands such as OCB and ZIG-ZAG.
In recent years the company has introduced more choice to the category with a sustained programme of category boosting NPD, aligning with the latest consumer trends. Recent examples include the introduction of OCB Virgin Slim and Slim & Tips, featuring an unbleached paper with a natural brown colour and providing consumers with the best possible rolling experience, and the premium quality Swan Ultra Slim filter, providing the thinnest ever Swan filter for the more discerning smoker.
The company also supplies some of the UK’s best-known match brands, including Cook’s, Bryant & May Extra Long and Ship, with the range benefiting from a recent upgrade to reflect growing demand for sustainable products and eco-friendly matches.
