Goods presentation for shisha tobacco – this is how you put your products in the limelight

Other ranges & legal changes

Innovations in product lines or entire changes in the law affect not only the brands and production , but also the presentation of goods and sales . These changes make it essential to choose new presentation solutions and to strengthen perception at the POS.

New hookah tobacco packaging sizes - new presentation solutions

The tobacco market has just been made a new regulation. From 2023 there will no longer be large packages of shisha tobacco available for purchase in free trade. The sales standard will be 25g packs , which then correspond to the filling capacity of a shisha bowl. In addition, water pipe tobacco and everything to do with e-cigarettes and the like are (more) taxed and can therefore no longer be sold without the well-known tax stamp.

The new tobacco tax regulation from July 1, 2022 at a glance

Not only the tobacco tax will be gradually increased, but also the maximum amount of tobacco available. Because from July 1, 2022, the new tobacco tax regulation takes effect. Shisha tobacco may then only be sold in 25g packages. For manufacturers, this means that in the near future it will no longer be possible to produce 1kg buckets or 200g cans, only pack sizes of 25g will then be permitted. However, there is a sell-off period until December 31, 2022, for products manufactured before July 1, 2022.

Federal government bill

With the planned tobacco tax reform, the federal government wants to tax e-cigarettes and tobacco heaters higher from this year on. Substances containing nicotine for use in e-cigarettes should in future be subject to tobacco tax instead of sales tax. An additional tax will be introduced for heated tobacco, so that in future it will be taxed like cigarettes. An annual tobacco tax increase is planned for conventional cigarettes and fine-cut cigarettes over a period of five years, starting in 2022.

Eight times as much packaging waste at Shisha Tabak

The 25g regulation has its consequences. For the environment, it means further exposure to even more packaging waste. In addition, the shisha tobacco will also increase in price, because this packaging material is an additional cost in production. In production, entire production lines have to be rebuilt or built in order to produce the new packaging and fill the tobacco. In addition, the transport costs also increase, as the 25g cans take up significantly more space than the previous 200g cans.
