The price of Rothmans Red KS 20 will be $ 56 and Box 20 $ 64 format, while the price of Rothmans Click KS 20 will be $ 56, while the price of Pall Mall KS 20 will be $ 68.
The company reiterated its concern about non-compliance with minimum tax payments by other tobacco companies, which affected the possibility of competing under the same conditions.
He also stressed that the minimum tax increase that came into effect on March 1, on cigarettes and especially on tobacco to arm, eliminated the only legal alternative available to the industry to combat illegal trade.
